This is the
OS/2 Bootstrap Project
Its purpose is to investigate booting OS/2 on modern systems.
With UEFI and GPT becoming more and more common, new ways need to be
found to enable booting OS/2 on such systems.
Why this project ?
Modern hardware is changing in ways that require adjustments to booting OS/2.
OS2Bootstrap has its focus on addressing the above issues

Currently, AirBoot is the (optional) BootManager for OS/2.
However, AirBoot is a track0 loader, meaning it depends on MBR partitioning.
Furthermore, the track0 space is limited (~32kB), hampering extension
of AirBoot with new features or capabilities.
OS2Bootstrap also aims to find direction for AirBoot
In no way this project has the intention to replace
or otherwise interfere with exsiting developments in this realm.
It is meant to be of a complementary nature.
