  1. Round table and introduction of main developers at Eurecom. See attached presentation for details
  2. License and copyright issues. See attached presentation for details
  3. Discussion on development tools
    • svn vs git:
      • most people are in favour of git!
      • Laurent: proposes to use jenkins + gerrit on top of git (like in openstack, see code.google.com/p/gerrit/wiki/ShowCases for an example)
      • use local github at Eurecom, but mirror it to github
    • Twiki: whoever wants an acount to change things, let us know.
    • Building, installing
      • build scripts are not ideal (not standard). for example, they fetch the UHD driver, even if it is already installed on the system
      • suggestion Alexander: use autotools, better for x-compilation
      • Laurent/Lionel experimenting with cmake
      • Tom: have you considered stronger separation between layers?
        • we will do a cleanup of the code soon, removing superflous stuff
        • we could seperate EPC from MODEM, but within MODEM this is more difficult
    • Code beautifying
      • Tom: instead of using automated tools we should rather follow the rules directly
      • moreover, we should make better use/enforce of svn/git log messages
      • Laurent: gerrit can help with this
  4. Next release:
  5. Other Testbeds:
    • Jorge (avero): development of RRH/RE with multi-mode /multi-band capabilities
    • Michal (TNO): Connection of OAI with Fraunhofer open 5G core, cloud RAN, multi-RAT
    • Kurt: OAI on B210 and ExpressMIMO2, open 5G core
  6. Other questions:
    • Michal: it would be nice to have the roadmap on the twiki, also a bug tracking tool would be nice
      • Raymond: there is a twiki page for the long-term roadmap (OpenAirRoadmap), but it needs to be updated
      • Raymond: we also have a bugzilla (bugzilla.eurecom.fr) but its not used
      • Laurent: we should rather switch to gerrit,since it is better integrated with the code
    • Laurent: there is budget for a position at Eurecom to set all of this up. If you want to work at the beautiful French riviera, please apply. More details here: http://www.eurecom.fr/en/eurecom/eurecom-recrute
