+The edk2 sources can be downloaded from:

Please use QEMU's edk2 mirror:

QEMU mirrors all dependencies so that even if upstream projects go
offline we can still rebuild all of QEMU from source.

Note that the github/lab generated tarballs are not signed, while
QEMU's release tarballs are gpg signed, so from that POV this would
be a regression no matter which site we point to.

Maybe we should point to the edk2 release page instead? I.e.:


Anyway, it's IMHO certainly not *our* job to provide signed edk2 sources here.

Also it would need more guidance on what to actually do with the
tarball, as if you merely unpack it into this dir, it won't work
as it will be one level of dirs nesting too deep for QEMU's
build scripts to work.

I could add some wording how to use the edk2-build.sh script with a downloaded edk2 tarball if that helps ... not sure whether it is really required, though, we also don't provide instruction for building any other firmware yet, as far as I know.
