OpenWrt Meeting - September 19, 2014
Attendees: Eric, Ian, Kathy
ELCE – Gold sponsorship, 3 sessions and a conf room. When are the sessions?
- IMG – 5 developers attending, Ian might be coming too ☺
- QCA – kathy yes, M&M need to make their reservations asap, Allan?
- prpl – Eric, Amit yes
When do we need to get session content/title info in? Who do we invite to participate in the prpl/community panel? Query OpenWrt mailing list to find out who is going to be there?
Student project – any ideas? Kathy has one for OpenWrt – "libsensor" idea. A library to pull out platform metrics and sensor values and expose (or collect) in user space. Expose library API via node.js and/or AllJoyn control panel? MIPS hw vendors, such as Dog Hunter (doghunter.org), and IMG and QCA engineers can mentor the students and provide free hardware. These prpl member engineers provide high-level design, students do detailed design and execute.
QCA – has some platform submissions (IPQ -- Mathieu) and security enhancement ideas. Seems easier to push directly to OpenWrt for now. When several prpl members begin collaborating, then we could envision having a separate prplWrt branch and maintainer. For now, too much extra effort to have separate prplWrt branch.
IMG – new hires coming in; contribution workflow to be determined. Today was Graham Whaley's last day in the office (22 years at IMG). We wish him well, and hope to keep in touch.
Meeting time – anyone who wants to be on this call that can’t make this time? We will leave as is for now and revisit during the ELCE conference session.
