    2121* Ser2net is used for providing remote access to a unit’s server ports over telnet. It is proposed to add support for a telnet console in rtems-tester so that it becomes convenient to telnet into serially connected devices and test applications on them, remotely.
    2222* I’ll add simulator recipes for RTEMS to work with gem5 for sparc64/usiii and arm/realview_pbx_a9_qemu BSPs.
    23 * I also plan to export the results of rtems-tester to xml format so that it can be plotted easily and used for other analysis as developers and users deem fit.

     26== Updates: ==
     27We have decided to rewrite configuration files in INI format instead of YAML in the absence of standard support for YAML in Python. Using PyYAML would add a dependency in the tool that would be difficult to handle across all hosts we support.
     28=== Handling macro values like %{_rtscripts}: ===
     29We will use RawConfigParser to parse the macros from INI files. It handles %(value) and %{value} both as format specification.
     30=== Handling those macro files that need user-specific things ===
     31We plan on taking assistance from a user-specified "settings" file that can help the main configuration file with user-specifics. THe ini file should have some defaults that lead to suitable errors which the user can rectify in the settings file.
     32=== Macro Maps ===
     33The macro maps are like namespaces and shouldn't be mixed for re-usability in different macro files for different BSPs.
