Action Items

  • [ACTION] Jesse to follow up w/james_w on hidden graphics page for 2011.07.

  • [ACTION] Everyone to reevaluate work items for 2011.07, move stuff back to buckets, break up complex items into smaller ones, etc.
  • [ACTION] Jesse to work with everyone on this at 1 on 1's
  • [ACTION] Jesse to ping rsalveti on the Unity release.
  • [ACTION] Jesse to create 2011.08 blueprints based upon existing ones.
  • [ACTION] Jesse to find out priority on porting benchmarks to Android.

Action Items from Previous Meeting

  • [Jesse] to sync with David Rusling on whether Russell King can be at Linaro Connect event.
    • DONE. Russell is coming, but his actual schedule is not yet firm, so more to come...
  • [Ilias/Jesse] decide final structure of the meeting
    • Still TODO. I think we can discuss in Connect for alternatives, eg IRC, unless you want to just experiment during July, in which case just do it. Joey Stanford can also help to create a separate linaro-graphics channel with a linarobot for logging attached properly.
    • [Jesse] +1
  • [Ilias] to check the situation with some non-graphics blueprints appearing in eg

    • Sent heads up to James_W, Jesse, could you followup and mark this as done or push to get resolution if not fixed?
    • DONE.


  • Post-mortem of 2011.06.
    • Same "off by one error" phenomenon with the new process as with the old (instead of 6 months of work in 5 months, we have 3 weeks to do 4 weeks worth of work - potentially). Also, releasing a component is nominally a couple of days.
  • Current state of 2011.07
    • We appear way behind, though this may not precisely be the case.
    • Much of the group is really sufferin from the above effects.
  • Planning for 2011.08
    • Everyone to move items from 2011.07 into both the 2011.08 blueprints and back into the buckets/backlogs.
    • Many of the items really need to be refined a great deal (the scope is much too large to be represented as a single work item.
