Action Items from Previous Meeting

  • [ALL] Blueprints to be populated for 11.09 (DONE)


  • 1109 blueprints:
    • Update on the process changes - backlog management and moving to absorbing roadmap items for planning of the work in a quarter. Backlog maintained as a number of blueprints targetted at a milestone in the active series of a project. The milestone can be called "backlog" and the blueprints will contain work items enough for a month's effort for each blueprint.
    • glproxy items for glcompbench blueprint refined for 1109 (, spec also to be fleshed out. GLProxy to be released as a component in 1109.

    • DMA mapping work-split amongst Chunsang and Shariq. There may be a limitation on how much discrete sharing can happen from Marek at the moment. We can talk about what is being worked on to make sure we do not have any overlap - one thing to do is to mark any work items that Marek is working on with his LP id.
    • Regarding work for linaro-mm-sig: Jesse is setting a git tree for the patches which exist eg the CMA patchset. Jesse will host also other patches in that tree, such as the dma-ops.
      • KMS blueprint is updated
      • Buffer-sharing object - blueprint updated. [ACTION] Summit to probe to the list for any further comments on the original buffer-object sharing RFC
    • Compiz/Nux/Unity - discussion ongoing for 1109, Nux and Unity should be possible to appear in an Oneiric evaluation build (nux patches still pending review from upstream side)
