During “weekend” (Thursday — Sunday) I was in Berlin, Germany where OEDEM took place. It was nice to finally meet people whom I know via Internet for years.

OEDEM 2006 people

From left to right:

  • Richard `RP’ Purdie from OpenedHand
  • Tomas Frydrych from OpenedHand
  • I
  • Michael `Mickey’ Lauer
  • Koen Kooi
  • Florian Boor from Kernel concepts
  • Holger `Zecke’ Freyther

We had many discussions about important OpenEmbedded things like problems, policies, creating some kind of OpenEmbedded Foundation for managing domains, trademarks, donations etc. Some of results are already happening:

  • removal of MAINTAINER fields (which we are going to replace with /MAINTAINERS file)
  • switching to task-base instead of the old one task-bootstrap to get clean images with just needed packages
  • removal of ipaq-pxa270 machines in favour of hx4700, hx2000 machines
  • new mailing lists got created:

    openembedded-issues with information from bugtracker — openembedded-users for all normal users which are not ready yet for openembedded-devel list — openembedded-announce for announcing

More stuff will follow soon. I’m going to write documentation about task-base stuff, how to switch distro/machine to use it etc.
