Agenda

  • Past Action Items
  • 3 ideas for connect sessions
    • pfefferz
      • Android system optimization
      • Single kernel source
      • Just weekly releases
    • patrikryd
      • How are we going to attack the Browser card?
      • How are we going get more patches upstream?
      • Do our members use our code? How can we improve?
    • bero
      • Bringing Android and regular Linux closer together
      • Fixing the Android build system mess (and related toolchain bits)
      • Qt on Android
      • Porting code that uses cmake to Android
      • Prehistoric code in Android: Should (parts of) bionic re-sync with the NetBSD libc it was forked from, and how? Can we do this without breaking upstream compatibility?
      • Native toolchain on Android
    • pundiramit
      • Porting common linux utilities on Android
    • Annamalai L
      • Linaro Android 3.3 Bringup on Origen.
      • Lauterbach debugging techniques for Embedded Systems, Scenarious, taking trace, dump etc..
      • Video Framework and Stage Fright in Andoid, includes buffer management etc...
    • jackh
      • Introduce our solutions to big/important local manufactures(like in China), let them take a big try of these solutions. I think if we can let them access our https://bugs.launchpad.net and raise bugs with priorities is better than our internal testers, since they know what's the key requirement of end users

      • Let's get more vendors who can manufacture A9 boards less than 150 USD. Because only through this, more students and developers will know Linaro through the boards, I think now the boards are just TOO EXPENSIVE.
      • Let me give more introductions of android and linaro into Universities and Communities here
      • Could we work more closely with AOSP?
      • Let's work closely with some mid-size hardware workshop here to make some awesome design out!
      • Let's work together with open source communities to integrate more utilities into our android build
