Welcome to OpenBIOS
Welcome to Open Firmware
The easiest way to get in contact with the OpenBIOS team is to subscribe the OpenBIOS mailinglist. If you want to contribute to OpenBIOS development, you should subscribe to the mailinglist as well. See further information on the Mailinglist page.
Our Project Statement contains some words about the intention of OpenBIOS and how we want to realize those goals. This is a rough draft of the dos and don'ts in the project and worthwhile reading if you consider contributing to the project.
Who are the people behind OpenBIOS? Who helped and contributed to make OpenBIOS as successful as it is today. See the growing Credits page for a (yet incomplete) list of people contributing to OpenBIOS with hardware, patches, code, hints, etc.
