Related BIT work

BIT members have been working on two areas that should be useful for the testing topic in the Tools Team:

  • meta-ivi-test: The Yocto Baseline maintainer has created and published a new layer that pulls together the packages needed to run tests on the Genivi components
  • LAVA Prototype: An Renesas R-Car M2 Porter board is being integrated into the Collabora LAVA test farm to allow a prototype to be created . See TOOL-39 - Getting issue details... STATUS


Topics for discussion:

  1. Delivery
    1. Is it useful to package the tests and enable a package manager so the extra packages needed for testing, e.g. the additions from meta-ivi-test, can simply be installed into an existing image?
