Buildroot Developers Meeting, 2-3 February 2015, Brussels

Location and date

The Buildroot community is organizing a meeting on February 2nd and 3rd 2015, for Buildroot developers and contributors. This meeting will be a mixture of discussion and hacking session around the Buildroot project. This meeting takes place either right before or right after the FOSDEM, in order to make it easy for participants to attend both events. It is not mandatory to attend both days.

The meeting will take place in offices of Google in Brussels, located Chaussée d'Etterbeek 176-180. See a map.



We would like to thank our sponsor:

  • Google is sponsoring due to their usage of Buildroot to build embedded Linux systems for embedded devices used in the Google Fiber project. The source code of their modified Buildroot is available at [1]. Google will be providing the meeting location, with Internet connection, but also free lunch and refreshments for the meeting participants.

We are still looking for a sponsor willing to sponsor the dinner for the participants. Sponsors are offered a visibility on the Buildroot website, during the Buildroot Meeting, and thanks in the Buildroot release e-mail. Please contact Thomas Petazzoni, thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com for more details.

Topics to discuss

  • GitHub helper:
    • try to avoiding the breakage when GitHub changes the download scheme
      • use the API => stable, but rate-limited to 60 anonymous requests per hour (5000 when authenticated)
      • always do a git clone => stable, not rate limited, but may have a huge impact on download sizes
    • what to do about other forges: Gitorious, Google Code...
