skiboot 6.0.13 was released on Wednesday November 14th, 2018. It
replaces skiboot-6.0.12 as the current stable release in the 6.0.x

This release includes one pflash change. This release does not modify
skiboot itself, so there is no reason to upgrade to this version if
you're on 6.0.12 already. This release is made exclusively so OpenBMC
can ship an updated pflash from a tagged release.

The pflash change is:

* pflash: Add --skip option for reading

  Add a --skip=N option to pflash to skip N number of bytes when
  reading. This would allow users to print the VERSION partition
  without the STB header by specifying the --skip=4096 argument, and
  it's a more generic solution rather than making pflash depend on
  secure/trusted boot code.
