Following on from the founding of the cross-distro ARM mailing list,
I'd like to propose an ARM summit at this year's Linux Plumbers
conference . I'm hoping for a slot on Thursday evening, but this
remains to be confirmed at this point.
We had some lively discussion about the state of ARM Linux distros at
the Linaro Connect  event in Cambridge last week. It rapidly became
clear that some of the topics we discussed deserve a wider audience,
so we're suggesting a meetup at Plumbers for that bigger
discussion. The initial proposed agenda is:
* ARM hard-float
+ What is it and why does it matter?
+ How can distributions keep compatible (i.e. gcc triplet to
describe the port)?
* Adding support for ARM as an architecture to the Linux Standard
+ Does it matter?
+ What's needed?
* FHS - multi-arch coming soon, how do we proceed?
* 3D support on ARM platforms
+ Open GL vs. GLES - which is appropriate?
but I'm sure that other people will think of more issues they'd like
to discuss. :-)
If you wish to attend, please reply to the cross-distro list and let
us know to expect you. Make sure you're registered to attend Plumbers
Conf, and get your travel and accommodation organised ASAP.
