MEETING TIME
16:00
se6astian
hello everyone
16:00
tpw_rules
good morning
16:00
se6astian
please direct message me now if you have something to report/share
16:01
se6astian
I will put everyone into order and give everyone a slot to report
16:01
se6astian
bertl normally goes last but notified me that he is occupied with an emergency tech support issue
16:01
se6astian
but he wrote me a few lines that I can share with you about his progress
16:02
se6astian
tpw_rules: please go ahead with your report
16:02
tpw_rules
alright, hello. i spent some time last week looking through the naps code and preparing a plan to work.
16:03
tpw_rules
i have a plan for setting up the beta hardware pin definitions in naps, but i am waiting on bertl to finish the sensors so i can test everything. i also have a plan to add the SPI support needed to communicate with the sensor
16:03
tpw_rules
but i am not sure how i will go about submitting the finished code
16:04
tpw_rules
that covers what i have on my GSoC timeline for this week. i think that is all from me
16:05
se6astian
many thanks, about submitting finished code we might also be able to discuss, what are your concerns?
16:05
se6astian
traditionally everything goes into a github repo
16:05
tpw_rules
i am just not sure the best way to do it. submit a PR from my own repo? where does design and code review fit?
16:05
tpw_rules
s/the best/the established/
16:06
anuejn
is here
16:06
se6astian
yes, commit to personal repo, create branches per work packages or features and the create pull requests to merge into main
16:06
se6astian
code review/feedback happens in the PR
16:06
tpw_rules
okay!
16:07
se6astian
vnksnkr: you are next!
16:07
vnksnkr
Thanks
16:07
anuejn
also I would be happy if you opened prs early (even if they are not ready yet) so that we have a plattform to discuss stuff
16:07
vnksnkr
So I've been working on sending signals for the push button
16:07
vnksnkr
There initially seemed to be some issue with the bounce that were being generated
16:08
vnksnkr
but it's resolved now
16:09
vnksnkr
Bertl suggested me to modify the code into a generic 'bounce' entity that can take in any type of input and generate output with bounces
16:10
vnksnkr
I've been able to do that too..now I need to write a wrapper to channel the signals to the different gpios
16:10
vnksnkr
https://github.com/vnksnkr/remote-test-system
16:10
vnksnkr
this is my current progress.. it might need some formatting and tidying up
16:10
vnksnkr
that's it from me :)
16:11
se6astian
many thanks!
16:11
se6astian
eppisai: your turn!
16:11
eppisai
hello!
16:14
se6astian
eppisai: are you still with us?
16:14
eppisai
I had my practicals exams last week, so have little progress this week.. i am anaylysing the code for for proper sepration between the firmware and bootloader.. so it becomes hardware agnostic..
16:15
se6astian
hmm, what do you mean exactly with "sepration between the firmware and bootloader", can you elaborate
16:17
eppisai
well. there are modules in firmware that are dependent on the bootloader periperals, but refactoring the code can help to design them properly.. like what i understood so far in transition task, we are needing centralDB for transition variables, which in turn needs to be accessed by display driver in LCDdriver..
16:18
se6astian
I see
16:18
eppisai
which creates this dependency on hardware driver, that firmware should not be concerned about..
16:19
eppisai
so, have been trying to comeup with proper solution.. also BAndiT1983 had included bootloader path in makefile properly
16:20
eppisai
*also BAnduiT1983 had created a task so i had included
16:20
se6astian
yes, this topic is definitely something to discuss with BAndiT1983 as well
16:20
se6astian
great, anything else?
16:20

16:21
eppisai
yea.. have not tested on remote yet.. but will do asap.. was busy with college stuff.. :(
16:21
eppisai
thats it i think..
16:21
se6astian
many thanks!
16:21
se6astian
anuejn: please go ahead
16:22
anuejn
I spend some more quality time with naps. I mostly fixed some small issues and made minor improvements here and there (regarding apertus related stuff).
16:22
anuejn
Additionally I began writing an HDMI receiver core, which might help us to debug our HDMI related problems (on quite low speed since it doesnt use transcievers and ECP5 based hardware from another project).
16:22
anuejn
Thats it from my side.
16:23
se6astian
alright, many thanks!
16:23
se6astian
Bertl_oO: wrote me a few lines of progress that I would like to share with you
16:24
se6astian
he is midway through testing the tele produced boards
16:24
se6astian
we had 4 different boards made and 10 of each
16:25
se6astian
he finished testing all main boards and all power boards
16:25
se6astian
there are some boards with issues on the connectors
16:25
se6astian
wont bore you with the details
16:25
se6astian
the sensors boards and interface boards are still missing
16:25
se6astian
once all tests are completed we will contact tele
16:26
se6astian
Bertl_oO expects he will finish this week
16:26
se6astian
quick reports from me:
16:26
se6astian
I just finished shooting the next Team Talk episodes with max
16:27
se6astian
we did it via video conference this time as meeting in person is still tricky
16:27
se6astian
but since it works really well this way and required effort is greatly reduced we might stick to that method
16:28
se6astian
max will start editing the next edition asap
16:28
se6astian
I still need to upload my footage for him
16:28
se6astian
on another front I have continued digging through the remaining components returned from the production run from tele
16:28
se6astian
to count them and put everything in lists, etc.
16:29
se6astian
and on another front which is less apertus related but not entirely unrelated I shot footage for oscars second feature film last week
16:29
se6astian
oscar who founded the apertus project
16:30
se6astian
in case you have no idea who oscar is you can read up a bit here: https://www.apertus.org/award :)
16:31
se6astian
feature film is in the final phase of post production: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9178176/
16:31
se6astian
right, thats it from me
16:31
