Agenda (brainstorming)

Here is some brainstorming on an agenda...

  • board farm survey (lightning talks)
    • what are people using?
    • what works?
    • what's missing?
      • board discovery/lab introspection?
  • layers and interfaces
    • what layers are supported, needed?
    • any way to leverage/separate/isolate existing software?
  • what tests need to be supported?
    • boot-time
    • run-time
    • package-based (package unit tests)
    • driver (hardware specific?)
      • requiring specialized hardware external to board (e.g. canbus simulator, hdmi frame-grabber)
    • multinode
      • how to allocate/schedule multiple pieces of equipment for a test (e.g. 2 or more nodes for a network test)
  • results reporting
    • centralized server and API to it (kernelCI json?)
  • sharing tests
  • how to define standards
    • de-facto only? (dominant project? (cough, LAVA))
    • documents?
  • survey of existing projects, and what pieces they focus on (or don't)
