So the repository will be moved from nongnu to git.qemu.org
even for qemu itself?

+- To compile PC related BIOSes
+  git.qemu.org holds the repositories for BIOSes sources.
+  So you can compile BIOSes by following steps.
+
+  $ git clone git://git.qemu.org/qemu.git
+  $ cd qemu
+  $ git submodule update --init
+  $ cd roms/seabios
+  $ make
+  $ cp out/bios.bin ../../pc-bios/bios.bin
+
+  The last three steps could be totally automated by the build system.
