Patrick Delaunay and i are the STM32 MCU/MPU's U-Boot Maintainers.
Recently Tom let us managed STM32 pull requests from our github temporary waiting for the gitlab migration.
Previously STM-U-boot custodian tree was used but inactive since 2013.
If this repo has been migrated on gitlab, could we get access to it and use it for STM32 ?
