Whiteboard

[vishalbhoj,Sep 7,2011]:wrt Panda build, adb works on panda provided cable is plugged into the device after its booted up(android driver gets configured completely after cable is plugged in), appears to be stable this way works on multiple times plugging/unplugging of cable. wrt Beagle-xM: adb is not stable,keeps disconnecting when you run commands like "logcat OR ls -l" on the adb shell.wrt LEB-panda,adb works but kernel crashes when you unplug the cable.
[asac, Sep 28, 2011]: blocked essential/high blueprints must get a comment in whiteboard every other day to update stakeholders what is done, progress etc. on blockers.
[asac, Sep 28, 2011]: I heard rumors that at least some boards grew adb support this month. please ensure that the work done for boards that now have working adb is moved to a separate blueprint that gets delivered and can be claimed. Thanks!
[pfefferz, Sep 30, 2011]: We're introducing a new term called BUGREPORTED. The Freescale team was focused on 3.1 and we needed a 3.0 on Linaro common. There's a disconnect here that we need to sort out.
[james-w, Oct 19, 2011]: changes BUGREPORTED to postponed until bugreported is standardised.
