Great. Adding Debian-EFI.
I'm not familiar - Is there a formal process for adopting a co-maintainer? Do you need to issue an upload with Debian-EFI listed in maintainers? Or can any DD do this task?
Any DD can do it.
The [maintainer change] process formally "requires" the previous
maintainer acknowledging it unless MIA --- which I'm explicitly doing
Thank you, Mario, for your continued support.
...and thank you in advance to the debian-efi team. Keep the good work!

I know libmsbios hasn't had a release in a long time, but this recently happened. I noticed you haven't had a lot of activity on the package in Debian. Would you be able to update to the new release?

In fact, please do. I don't have much time left.
I'd love to be listed as a co-maintainer, though.
I do have a lot of Dell servers in production (ranging from PE1950 all through R630), so I can test new versions of the tools on real hardware.... :)
Thank you, Mario.
