EF: Is it possible to discuss transfer of material to the new infrastructure and discuss the governance?

JK: May need to take this outside of the meeting but will circulate material and ask for feedback

EF: Is there a link between the review device tree and text based configuration?

RK: Config wizard puts annotations in the header file. Can also manually edit the file

EF: Is it separate from Device Tree?

RK: Might be link. Config wizard is well understood. Need to check if the concept is the right one but it’s discussed in the next slides.


LM: Need some time to review the proposal - hard to tell in this context.

RK: Would like to plan a discussion session next week and form an opinion.

EF: CMSIS-Zone - idea is to reuse the concept of zone file and diversify it.

RK: Memory and peripheral handling for secure and non-secure. Might be a good idea to go over this block. Had a deep dive on Device Tree. Criticism is non-standard data format (not XML) and has functionality gaps. Perhaps we can harmonise the concepts

LM: Plan to generalise to any project including bootloader plus application

RK: Yes similar to multiproject

JK: Does it make sense to review next week or the week after?

EF: Think we need more than one week

[Presentation on ‘vidx2pidx’]


EF: In GitHub have an additonal state of ToDo - should we map this to Jira?

JK: Once it’s in Jira it becomes part of the backlog - so equivalent to ToDo.

EF: Don’t know what is done in other projects. to map the user story thread to a pull request - not sure how to manage this.

JK: Need to show we are treating each PR fairly.
