Is FirmwareUpdate.efi really firmware in Fedora's sense? Won't it run
on the host CPU?
In the Git repository
Mellanox does not provide permission to redistribute the firmware, only
required notices of components that they have used to build it. Just
saying that something has been derived (in part) from open source
software does not make it open source, or even redistributable.
Right, the Mellanox people are CC to the bug so I assume they want it
packaged. I will ask for further clarifications.
