Greetings,

Efibootmgr and efivar are needed on x86 platforms that utilize uefi,
however, the versions in the package repository are 64bit only.

I have an outstanding pull request that adds support for this architecture
as well as claim maintainership of these packages that has been open for 25
days.

I know that v3.7.0 has just been released so I know that people are
probably busy with that, however, in Gentoo Linux, there are procedures in
place for stabilization but I do not see any documentation on stabilizing
packages in Alpine Linux.

We were mostly busy in preparing for v3.7.0 release, that's why we did not
merge new stuff.
I believe that "package stabilization" in Alpine it's the equivalent of
moving the package from testing->{community,main}. Usually when a package
is tested, known to be working and it has a maintainer we don't have
objection to merge move requests.

Thanks!
