Please update flashrom package
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

We are currently up-to-date wrt Debian for flashrom. A request for a new upstream version has been filed here: https://bugs.debian.org/892065

Can someone follow up on this ? That request says "it doesn't have huge changes but it would be nice to have it" is actually wrong since this v1.0 release actually adds Skylake support which is definitely a must-have rather than a nice-to-have feature. (At least for us).

@kakaroto This ticket is currently unassigned so it's not on anyone's radar. May I suggest assigning to @zlatan.todoric so that he can pass it on to whoever is free, etc.?

Sure, I have no idea how you guys do things, so I'll just assign it to zlatan as suggested. Thanks.

Bump. @zlatan.todoric any ETA on how soon can this be done ? @mladen.pejakovic needed to use flashrom yesterday and it wasn't working because it's still outdated, and I realized this hasn't been fixed yet.
Thanks!

Hmm, I can't update this in Debian unless I am NMUing the package of another maintainer, which I really don't want to do.
I could update this in PureOS, which would introduce a delta between Debian and PureOS.
The ideal solution would have been if the Debian maintainer had just updated the package...

Ping Debian maintainer but otherwise go ahead with change in PureOS.
