Hi! My name’s Robert Austin, and my GSoC 2010 project is to get TianoCore working well as a coreboot payload. TianoCore is the open source component of Intel’s implementation of UEFI. TianoCore on it’s own is not a BIOS replacement, but it can do some interesting things, and since a quite a few large companies are already committed to EFI, it makes sense to have an EFI payload as an option in coreboot.
I am very excited about working on this project, and working with the coreboot community. I will make regular announcements about my progress here on this blog, and I will keep my working code available in a git repository here. There isn’t anything there yet, but there will be soon. To anyone who happens to checkout my code during the summer, I welcome any comments or suggestions relating to the style or quality of my code. I want to write high-quality code, so feedback is appreciated.
