ProteanOS maintainer, responsible for maintaining ProteanOS builds on many libreboot targets, and contributes to libreboot. This person's alias on the libreboot IRC channel is pehjota, or you can find contact information on the ProteanOS website. Patrick also did a lot of research and wrote the libreboot FAQ section relating to the Intel Management Engine, in addition to making several improvements to the build system in libreboot.

Steve Shenton

Ported the ThinkPad X200 to libreboot, by figuring out how to deactive the Intel Management Engine on that laptop, and remove the firmware while still making the system boot correctly. The ThinkPad T400, T500, R400 and R500 were also ported to libreboot, based on this work.

Denis Carikli

Based on the work done by Peter Stuge, Vladimir Serbineko and others in the coreboot project, got native graphics initialization to work on the ThinkPad X60, allowing it to be supported in libreboot. Denis gave Leah a lot of advice and helped her to found the libreboot project. Contact GNUtoo-irssi in the #libreboot IRC channel. Denis is also one of the founders of the Replicant project.

Vladimir Serbinenko

Ported many of the thinkpads supported in libreboot, to coreboot, and made many fixes in coreboot which benefited the libreboot project. Contact phcoder in the #coreboot IRC channel on freenode.

Paul Menzel

Investigated and fixed a bug in coreboot on the ThinkPad X60/T60 exposed by Linux kernel 3.12 and up, which caused 3D acceleration to stop working and video generally to become unstable. Paul worked with Leah on this, sending her patches to test periodically until the bug was fixed in coreboot, and then helped her integrate the fix in libreboot. Contact PaulePanter in the #libreboot IRC channel.

Jeroen Quint

Contributed several fixes to the libreboot documentation, relating to installing Parabola with full disk encryption on libreboot systems. Contact Jezza in the #libreboot IRC channel.

Arthur Heymans

Merged a patch from coreboot into libreboot, enabling C3 and C4 power states to work correctly on GM45 laptops. This was a long-standing issue before Athur's contribution. Arthur also fixed VRAM size on i945 on GM45 systems, allowing maximum VRAM allocation for the onboard GPUs on these systems, another longstanding issue in libreboot. Contact apvh in the #libreboot IRC channel.

Peter Stuge

Helped Leah write the section about DMA on ../faq/#firmware-hddssd, and provided general advice in early days of the project. Contact CareBear\ in the #coreboot IRC channel on freenode.

Klemens Nanni

Made many fixes and improvements to the GRUB configuration used in libreboot, and several tweaks to the build system. Contact kl3 in the #libreboot IRC channel.

Marcus Moeller
