After more than a year since I released 1.3.15-rc I have relased
1.3.15. This is an incremental change over the "rc" just removing support for
bootinfo records. These records were never used and in some cases could
corrupt the kernel.
I have also released 1.3.16. This is identical to 1.3.15 in terms of code but
adds a kernel style Developer's Certificate of Origin (DCO) for yaboot
submission. I have added this at the requiest of my employer (IBM) but I also
feel that it is a good idea, and will not cause anyone problems.
The DCO can be found in the root of the yaboot source tree (from version
1.3.16+). For refference I have included it there.
