> Dear all,

> * Date and Location
> * Participants
> * The Ports (which Devices to support)
> * The Stack (SysV Init vs. Systemd / Udev vs. Devtmpfs)
> * Stability and Organization

> Date and Location:
> The FSOSHRCON'11 took place from 16.12. - 18.12.2011 at the Linux
> Hotel in Essen, Germany.

> The Ports (which Devices to support):
> FSO status:
> [working] Openmoko GTA01, Openmoko GTA02, Palm Pre (+variants)
> [work in progress] Goldelico GTA04, Nokia N900, Google Nexus S
> SHR supports:
> Openmoko GTA02, Goldelico GTA04, Nokia N900, Palm Pre (+variants),
> Google Nexus S
> The Stack (SysV Init vs. Systemd / Udev vs. Devtmpfs):
> * SHR will switch from SysV init to Systemd in the (near) future, to
> provide a faster and cleaner bootup.
> * There will probably be a minimal FSO init process, which can be used
> to bootup a minimal FSO featurephone stack.
> * We see phones as mostly static devices with fixed use cases, thus we
> prefer devtmpfs over udev and will use it on all devices running
> * Udev will stay in the feeds, so power users who want to use their
> phone as a mini computer can install it anyways.
> Stability and Organization:
> * SHR will make releases in the future
> * Release will be created from best staging image + feed, but
> without maintaining release branch.
> * releases consists of a set of features and/or bug fixes
> * for testing the new features, staging images are published and
> tested by developers and the community
> * developers are working on feature branches which are merged after
> the work is finished
> * versions of major components are locked in SHR and updated as
> Solved Tasks:
> * GTA04 support: you can now build SHR-Core images, which are almost
> working. Still lacking proper power management (kernel) and proper
> audio routing (fso/alsa) – both are worked on
> * shr_elm_softkey: fixed a long standing bug which prevented you from
> closing several applications (ffphonelog, ffalarms, iliwi)
> * ffalarms: fixed segfault on adding an alarm
> * trac cleanup: we started to clean up our trac bug database, which
> included closing a lot of outdated/obsolete bugs.
> Openmoko Community Survey 2011 – please take part!
> We decided to start a poll about which hardware and which software you
> use or are interested in these days. The results will help us to
> focus on relevant hard-/software.
