Mohd Noor Aman

  • June 1: Community bonding second meeting
    • Last week's work: Introduction to community, discussions, blog writing, bought FT232H adapter, tested serial communication using PL011 (Raspbian bullseye arm64 and alpine 3.15.4 aarch64)
    • Blocker: Very less documentation about FT232H and raspberry pi 4 JTAG
    • Next week's plan: Mid-term exams, testing JTAG + serial with OpenOCD and GDB, and blog about it.

Mahmoud Abumandour

  • June 1: Bonding period second meeting
    • Last week's work: Fixing glaring issues with the current ReleaseNotesGenerator? repository, learning about reStructuredText, generating overall summary before detailed descriptions of individual tickets, and investigating performance issues with fetching and processing tickets sequentially.
    • Blocker: Profiling shows that most time is spent in fetching the tickets from trac, which means an internet speed limitation and not bottlenecked by data processing.
    • Next week's plan: Going through final exams and taking care of my graduation thesis, I don't expect to be able to put much effort. I will start a blog for the project and include manually-written pre-existing top-level notes to the new generator, like in the rtems-release workflow.

Prashanth S

  • June 1: Community Bonding Period second meeting
    • Previous Week: I am going through AM335x starterware and reference manual for CAN hardware Initialization sequence.
    • Next Week: I am planning to try Tx and Rx in loop back mode.
    • Challenging: Designing or choosing the appropriate stack.
