Hi Matt!

I am contacting with you because of your recent linux-iio patch
submission adding BME280 support.

I am involved in kernel development for Pyra Handheld project
(http://pyra-handheld.com/). Bosch BME280 chip is amongst peripherals
included on Pyra's mainboard. So we are interested to benefit from your
great work.

So, do you have any schedule for resubmission of your patchset
"iio: pressure: bmp280: add BME280 part support"? Even if there's
nothing done yet, or you no longer work on it, just let us know please.

Could you please also check if our DT configuration coherent with your
BME280 patch (and how to fix it)? Our main developer has such concerns
about his "draft" declarations:

You can see original posting of main Pyra kernel developer regarding
this here:

Also we are interested in any additional code from which we could
benefit. There is a chance that BNO055 chip will be included on device's
mainboard, and there seems to be no driver for it in mainline kernel. If
you have any kernel code for it, we'd love to look at it.

If you are interested to participate in development of Pyra device, then
you are more than welcome to do so, and you can add yourself to these

 - kernel at pyra-handheld.com (mailman setup with broken web part, you need
to send email to kernel-join at pyra-handheld.com to subscribe).

 - letux-kernel at openphoenux.org

These lists are in CC of this email, please reply to all recipients if
you are OK about it.

Looking forward for your reply! Thanks in advance for any helpful
