  • Taha Mohammad
  • Gunnar Andersson
  • Zeeshan Ali
  • Phil, ATS

  •  Update from the GDP team 

  • Discussion on Aktualizer PR

    • Leon: Since we need to create aClean history. Removing redundant commits.
    • Discussion
  • Walk-through of now open pull requests to genivi-dev-platform and meta-genivi-dev
    • We shared all open PRs and commented on their status.
    • John Erigh: Preparing a post to list
    • John: We are now at the milestone where we said we would agree on feature set. Are we ready to decide on it?
    • John: Is genivi-projects the right place to publish this? Agreed that it is.
    • John: Where is the list of bugs to include?
    • Gunnar: In my opinion, feature descriptions should be in promotional material, bugs should not. It would have to be a very major problem that many users are waiting for a fix. Normally, bug fixes are just reported at the time of release, together with new features, in Release Notes.
    • John: Gunnar, where are the updated feature descriptions?
    • Gunnar: Started working on it
    • Steve: The information post should be a list of features only, the feature description needs to be done soon but not critical for this post.
    • Agreed first we must have the bug list up to date and tagged as planned for GDP-12
    • Zeeshan: Bugs are not tagged with GDP-12 yet.
    • AI (Zeeshan): Do first bug triage and tag them with GDP-12
  • Stephen: Let me propose two important bugs for starters:
    • GDP-482 Display issues on Porter and Silk
    • GDP-569 GDP display on multiple display output Gen2 and Gen3
