Re: [pok-devel] ARINC-653 intrapartition communication compatibility

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Hi guys,

this discussion reminds me I wanted to ask this question to the pok developpers: why wouldn't we use branches to organize this type of new contribution?

If we had a branch for Maxim's devs we could easily experiment the compatibility with Ocarina or RAMSES. Similarly, I have a student working on pok and it would probably be easier for him as well to have his own branch until we reach the point to decide if we must integrate his code in the trunk.

What is your opinion about this?

Hi Maxim,

That sounds great! Please let us know how we can adapt the code generation
layer from Ocarina! Also, do you plan to commit to test suite?

Thanks for your contribution, I am looking forward to integrate that in the
main code base !
