CMSIS Pack Documentation
EF: Is the original documentation on Keil side now “read-only”?
FR: Where is the glossary?
JK: Should consider making it easier to contribute to - as a MD file if that’s feasible
JA: Did this in the former Shadowfax files
JK: Should also capture the architectural decisions
[actions for Jonatan]
FR: Still plan to review the glossary
JK: Yes, once we have moved it will be easier
Component Syntax (YAML, messages)
LM: Anything new in the syntax?
JK: Haven’t been very clear on how we want to specify - introducing new separator. Some things to clean up on our side.
EF: To keep traceability - we need to manage a table?
RK: It’s a way to specify component in 1 string for e.g. error messages
JK: Can’t prevent a vendor from moving a component from Pack A to Pack B.
SH: Isn’t this a problem to share something with a colleague - how do we know we’re working on the same thing?
JK: Pack vendors responsibility to make sure the component(s) are identical.
EF: cprj file have the information but not able to link. Don’t know which pack a component is coming from.
JK: responsibility of the vendor to have unique components.
RK: Want to have this syntax string make it easier to select the component.
SH: Sounds like it could still be interesting to specify the pack version and name if you want it. Could be ignored if you don’t want to use it.
JK: If could ignore it then need to say what we do with it in each specific case.
DJ: 2 cases where it could be useful to have linkage with the pack:
RK: Only purpose here is a more compact representation of what the component is.
JK: Should revisit this discussion for the overall project YAML file.
(discussion about wildcards)
EF: Is there an issue open for this discussion?
JK: Will send out an email where you can find it [action Joachim]
Search Paths for packs/pack filter options
JK: Want to make sure we find answers
LM: Definitely something we need
EF: Links in previous slides for pack created by Amazon - there was no access. Are the packs published?
JK: Packs are attached as assets to the release.
