This is the old Git repository for Libreboot. You can still see the old files. Browse them here:\ https://notabug.org/libreboot/obsolete-repository-preserved-for-historical-purposes/src/149273c6742aeed14ec1aaca019f552cfb109457
When cloning this repository, go into it and do this:
git reset --hard 149273c6742aeed14ec1aaca019f552cfb109457
This old repository was too cluttered. Build system, website, images, documentation etc were all in the same repository. Libreboot has been split up into new repositories:
This is the build system in libreboot. You could say: lbmk is libreboot!
Libreboot was forked into a new project called osboot: https://osboot.org/
Unlike libreboot, osboot permits binary blobs. Osboot was then forked into a
new branch (in its Git repository), called
libre, which you can see here:
libre branch of osboot has the same policy as Libreboot: zero binary blobs.
lbmk repository for Libreboot was forked from osboot-libre, at Git
20ef8e43421b3c9bc6c34084530ee35b49fdf76d which you can see in the
osboot and osboot-libre are both lead by Leah Rowe, as is Libreboot. Leah is the founder of all these projects.
Basically, Libreboot is intended to focus on coreboot stable releases, and backport patches inbetween releases. Whereas osboot and osboot-libre are to use coreboot HEAD (from coreboot master branch in its git repository) at all times.
Libreboot development by Leah Rowe resumed in December 2020, via osboot and then osboot-libre, with the intention of then moving it back into Libreboot.
On this day, 18 May 2021, the lbmk Git repository for libreboot looks like not much work was done to it. That's because it's a hard fork of osboot-libre.
To know what work was done, therefore you should look at the
libre branch of
osboot right up until commit
