Summary

Port Pilot is a recurring event run and hosted by linaro that aims at jointly working to improve the software stack available for ARM on linux by porting applications that have build or runtime failures specific to arm and the linaro toolchain.

Event

Every Wednesday at 1400 UTC, Linaro will organize a porting session in #linaro-meeting for 4h.

Resourcing

Linaro will ensure seeding of engineers to make this effort effective. For this linaro will ensure the attendence of the following engineers from Linaro:

  • 1 * Project Manager
  • 2 * Platform ARM Porters
  • 1 * Toolchain WG Liason (bi-weekly rotation)

The ARM Porting Pilot will initially focus on the Ubuntu Archive as this used as the primary development platform for linaro. However, in future we will pick up ARM porting issues coming from other distributions. Which distributions can be supported in a porting pilot events depends on integration status of that distribution in linaro as well as participation and commitments of peers from that distribution.

Resource planning is done on in monthly chunks. 2 weeks before the beginning of the month, the linaro project manager reaches out to Managers who signed of for their team contributing to this effort in order to get a resource commitment for each individual event of the following month.

Work Pool

  • A porting queue will be maintained that is used to accumulate work and help requests from affected distributions.
  • launchpad bugs that have the arm-porting-queue tag set get attention by the porting coordinators.
