Preparation for Postponing 2.0 features but providing a converged HUD service

Registered by Antti Kaijanmäki on 2013-03-26

This blueprint outlines the work items to land a converged HUD service (the backend) and pausing the HUD 2.0 APIs or any further HUD feature development for time being. Reason for this is that it's not fully clear yet whether HUD will be part of first phone release or not.

Whiteboard

This blueprint is a PROPOSAL outlining the work items for cracefully postponing the HUD 2.0 features in case the HUD might be left out from the first phablet release.

phablet hud-service would be merged to HUD trunk to get a single unified code base.

Note:
This blueprint assumes that the HUD will be removed from the phablet image completely and reintroduced when the postponed features are implemented.

Acceptance Criteria:
 - nux HUD UI does not regress on the desktop
 - possible bit-rot on the postponed components does not affect other parts of the system like the Shell

(?)
