  • GSoC discussion, adding mentors to the projects, still need new projects.

  • Gunnar joined Pelagicore at their offices and went over GDP and lifecycle, team felt it was productive

  • Finding a screen to use has come down to specifics, the GeChic screen is considered suitable and affordable.

  • Issues with Morty branch in Yocto -- had to drop Navit, image built, but the app using Navit looks pretty bady at the moment. We’re talking about the ‘navigation’ application which and not the FSA. One has to run the FSA, or Fuel Stop Advisor, from a script on the commandline.

  • Navit requires gypsy, which is a dead upstream. We don’t know if there will be a new maintainer.

  • Perhaps dropping Navit from master for now since it’s causing problems is the best approach, there was consensus for this move.

  • Is there old HMI code still in recipes?

    • There may be but if there is we ought to talk to Tom Pollard, JLR graphics team, and ICS ought to know what code is maintained and what is not.

  • Go agent failing on something called jq

  • Jacobo filed an issue on the Silk board. May be related to removal of support for rpm packages. Need to gather more information

New Business
