Minutes from GDP Weekly Open Call on Jan 18, 2017

  • Systemd work will be started this week
  • The GPD team and Gunnar will meet this Friday
  • Zeeshan has been testing the chromium port and given feedback to the developers. The resolution event call that does not happen is a problem that results in faulty resolution settings for the chromium app.
  • The GeChic screen was briefly tested by the GDP team. Did not work out of the box on the porter board. Needs more testing.
  • Zeeshan started testing poky morty. Got some traction but there are still ways to go.
  • Discussions about what to focus on are posponed till next weeks meeting.
  • Discussion about who determines if a component can be dropped from the GDP project. Gunnar says this needs to be synced up with all the stakeholders.
  • Zeeshan proposes that GDP should be a part of Google summer of code and asks the meeting attendees  to keep it in their mind.
  • FOSDEM is in two weeks.
    • Zeeshan will give a talk on the Saturday. Jeremiah will introduce Zeeshan to people who can assist in giving useful content to the talk.
    • GDP dinner planed at Saturday night.
  • Jeremiah suggest to remove unused build artifacts, such as ext4s. This would both save disk space and lessen the work done at release.
