  • Welcome to Faramarz Rashed, who's going to be the new engineering manager! Make sure to find a time to chat with Faramarz if you haven't already.


  • Need to book travel to the work week so that hotel reservations can be finalized.


  • Now that we have support for marionette in b2g, we need to start seriously hammering on testing. Three main areas
    1. running existing m-c tests on b2g
    2. start adding gaia tests
    3. start adding tests of device-interaction APIs that we've been waiting on harness support for
  • We'll have a dedicated gaia meeting this week. Schedule forthcoming.

    • Bluetooth firmware loads successfully, but we can't actually access the features of the chip due to some incompatibility somewhere in bluez. We're using the same bring-up method as cyanogenmod, but our both our kernel and bluez versions differ. I did diffs on both of these between them and us and can't see anything too out of the ordinary though. People helping: cjones, mwu

    • Rebase proximity backend for Android again.
    • I have my laptop repaired XD
  • shianyow
    • Investigating to add valgrind to B2G source tree.
      • There is AOSP version of valgrind (base on 3.6.0), not sure if it's fully worked, and seems it supports Android ics only.
      • Should be better to use valgrind 3.7.0 from SVN.
        • valgrind 3.7.0 can be built manually and working on SGS2.
        • Integrating to B2G source tree need to port it from automake to Android.mk, it's not a lightweight task. Consider to add flexbility to use reguar makefile instead of Android.mk in B2G source?
