Meeting Notes

#450 Local support in cproject.yml for build-type and target-type

HS: Got some suggestions from Joachim for for-type.

RK: for-type is not required

HS: Think it (#450) meets our requirements. It’s very important for multicore projects in RT platforms.

RK: We have agreement that #450 is the framework we’re going to implement. Will rename for-type to for-context to make it clearer. Will work to get it into the specification.

#175/#176 File category mapping

RK: Backward compatibility vs older versions of the tools is the compelling part.

ED: If a file is for both C and C++ how do we specify that?

JK: Would have needed to specify it twice

RK: My opinion - have C-CPP to cover both

#615 Guidance for compiler agnostic projects

#607 ‘defines’ are used by all build tools

HS: Think the yaml file should have the same requirements as #175/#176

RK: Don’t think this is a big deal (to add it).

#618 way to rename build output in cproject/csolution

HS: Think not only about output, but also about output name.

JK: in this proposal you have file-path file extension

CMSIS-Toolbox Version 1.4.0

FR: Just for the naming, I think we should avoid saying "variant" when we say that they are all valid at the same time. With components, variants are exclusive.

JK: alternative

FR: I'm still confused - sometimes it is values, sometimes drivers instances ?

JK: Alternative layers need to be used exclusively like variants...

DB: Could be named ‘capabilities’ if interfaces is too confusing.

EF: Is there a way to describe how components are configured? Interested to know how it can work and how to use it.

RK: Have some demos in preparation.

JK: Still need to get to a taxonomy.
