Dear TSC

The Linaro TSC is being requested to grant permission to use and modify the bootchart and pybootchartgui projects for the purpose of profiling boot-time memory usage.

Bootchart is a tool for performance analysis and visualization of the GNU/Linux boot process. It does not currently profile memory usage: adding support for this will allow linaro to obtain memory profiling information via existing automated test infrastructure.

Any changes accepted into the bootchart and pybootchartgui packages in Ubuntu will be distributed to end users and may be merged into upstream projects.

The existing projects are covered by version 3.0 of the GNU General Public License (

I would be grateful if you could grant permission.

Kind Regards,

Dave Martin (linaro foundations)

Request Type

Pre-existing project with OSI-approved license, therefore only Linaro TSC approval is required.
