Team Highlights

  • ARMHF: build farm setup for the Freescale quickstart boards used. Build farm is now ready - just waiting to be fit in a machine room at ARM.
    • On the Debian hardfp build: mono/armhf has been uploaded. chromium-browser fails checking why, building both qtwebkit/webkitgtk+ now manually. Konstantinos also reported that he needs to get some 180 packages to be built to reach past the 90% mark
    • Toolchain work (linker) was left on the side while this work was done
  • Boot architecture: meetings scheduled to restart on the week after LPC.
  • Quite a few folks on vacation during wk35 (or just returning from vac)

Miscellaneous

  • Time off: Steve McIntyre on his honeymoon! Congratulations Steve!!

  • David Rusling and Grant Likely will be at LPC during wk36
  • Getting ready the plans for Linaro Connect summits: from OCTO there is initiative for Server, Set-top box, also IVI (last one looks unlikely at the moment due to other events)
