This means, that there is no concrete plan, that everyone must follow for it to succeed. Instead, '''everyone is encouraged to work on what they enjoy most!'''
  
In consequence, pmOS does not use a regular milestone plan with versions (at least right now). Here is a list with what individuals are working on. '''Feel free to add yourself here and what you are interested in''' (optionally with priorities and estimated finish date), but you don't have to! If you do, please keep your section of this list updated, and remove finished tasks.

Basically all points listed below are done together with other community members. In fact, when I do postmarketOS work today, it is most of the time ''not'' running/porting pmOS on a device, but doing something else from below.
  
''Right now, my primary focus is recruiting more developers by keeping the development enjoyable. Apart from fixing bugs and reviewing/testing/merging PRs, I focus on the following list. Feel free to discuss the importance of these items with me in [https://github.com/postmarketOS/pmbootstrap/wiki/Matrix-and-IRC Matrix/IRC] or on [https://reddit.com/r/postmarketOS /r/postmarketOS] (for longer discussions).''

Revision as of 18:00, 9 September 2019

postmarketOS aims to be like a typical Linux distribution - with lots of possibilities to choose from. And with a default selection of components, that are most useful to casual users.
This means, that there is no concrete plan, that everyone must follow for it to succeed. Instead, everyone is encouraged to work on what they enjoy most!

In consequence, pmOS does not use a regular milestone plan with versions (at least right now). Here is a list with what individuals are working on. Feel free to add yourself here and what you are interested in (optionally with priorities and estimated finish date), but you don't have to! If you do, please keep your section of this list updated.

These are all estimations and the community is expected to understand when something does not work out as planned here. This is a free time project after all, so be grateful, that the individuals step up and share their plans at all.

ollieparanoid

Basically all points listed below are done together with other community members. In fact, when I do postmarketOS work today, it is most of the time not running/porting pmOS on a device, but doing something else from below.

Make development enjoyable for everybody:

  • fix all pmbootstrap bugs
  • test / review / integrate pull-requests
  • help whenever someone is stuck with development
  • find, write down and resolve technical debt
  • work on features, that make development easier (e.g. #688 new kernel porting workflow, #383 split aports into its own git repository)
  • assist with implementation ideas in GitHub issues
  • improve documentation in the wiki
  • improve continuous integration (e.g. #110 more automatic shell checking, #760 run fast tests in Travis)
  • write about what we do in blog posts
  • help with infrastructure (homepage, wiki, ...)
  • work together with upstream

Get postmarketOS ready for daily usage:

  • research on how we could implement "daily driver" stuff (e.g. #161 plasma-mobile, #598 cellular modem, #592 firmware patching)
  • binary package repository

My plan for telephony:

  • Mainline the Nexus 4, improve pmbootstrap tooling for mainlining (e.g. #1210) and writing a step by step mainlining guide (like the porting guide) in the process. I've learned a lot about mainlining, and for the most part it's writing the dts file from what I understand, at least when all the phone's components are in upstream already (which is the case for the Nexus 4 from what I know).
  • Get telephony working on that with ofono and QMI (there's a QMI driver in the mainline kernel)

MartijnBraam

  1. Try to post as much different devices as portable to find edgecases in the build process
  2. Maintaining some of the pmos infra (wiki, binary package mirrors, website)

AndrewMcSwain

  1. Evangelization
    • project-specific (devs)
    • Means: current: word of mouth in Sao Paulo ; future: meetups, talks, panels, presentations
    • philosophy and anthropology of tool-making (gateway for layperson to the hacking community)
    • Means: writings and discussions with intellectuals, the urban youth, the homeless, and the elite of Sao Paulo society
  2. On-boarding and new dev integration
  3. Documentation

-(more details to come)-

ata2001

  • [x] 1. Implement a feature in pmbootstrap, what will allow users to create recovery flashable zips for android devices. (#109)
  1. Make postmarketOS work on the following devices:
    • [x] Sony Xperia Z1 Compact (amami)
    • [ ] Motorola Moto G 3rd gen. (osprey)
    • [ ] Motorola Defy+ (jordanplus)

Pablo Castellano

  1. Add support for new devices (actually focused on Moto G 2014). If you want, you can send me your device by mail and I will try to add pmOS support to it. After that I will return the device back to you.
  2. Make pmOS debugging easier for new developers
  3. Improve documentation & usability of pmboostrap/pmOS

craftyguy

  1. Develop osk-sdl, an sdl/directfb on-screen keyboard for use during initramfs execution
  2. Make the greatest device ever, the Nokia N900, the best device to use with postmarketOS.
