Activities from last week
Pack Search Path
EF: Pack search path is decoupled from cmsis_pack_root. Also have request from some customers to import packs into a specific directory.
JK: Could set cmsis_pack_root to point to a specific folder but key point is that you have both.
PackChk, Schema and Documentation maintenance
EF: Question on upstream tools. The version upstreamed - is it the same that existed in Arm before?
JA: Basically packcheck is the same as before but with cosmetic code changes. The only function change - used svdconf but it never worked on systems other than Windows so it has been removed.
Project Manager Overview
FR: I think we still have the disagreement about one "solution" or application project managing several HW targets => shall we log it in the new issue too ?
RK: Please log it in a new issue. I suggest let’s try it out, but it’s not mandatory.
FR: ok, if it is not mandatory then probably it is fine
build-types : I am happy with it
target-types : I am doubtful
ok, we can give a try and make bets :-)
I would bet 10$ that it gets too complicated versus the gain when it comes to HW-related applications
now, for AI : if HW does not matter that much, yes, maybe
but for AI I guess you care for the Cortex, the FPU, the memories but not the peripherals and their drivers
EF: In this proposal are there some differences vs what was presented in previous meeting?
RK: Have been many proposals and hard to follow all of them …
EF: Just to understand if you changed your mind on anything
RK: No, not really. The diagram in the issue is just a refinement.
JK: Some more wording/specification has been added in terms of order of precedence etc.
EF: When do you expect feedback on this?
RK: Have started to implement it. In the next 4 weeks would like to come to final things. Maybe won’t be able to get CMSIS-Zone stuff done but at least get the project stuff done.
JK: Next week’s meeting will be skipped to give time for people to catch up.
