Whiteboard

Notes:
[2012/9/11 pfefferz] Put notes here.
[2012/10/01 patrik-ryd] The ST-Ericsson snowball have been planning for a couple of weeks now to deliver a set of patches with bug fixes for WLAN and BT for the ICS snowball build. The work split that has been agreed (https://docs.google.com/a/linaro.org/document/d/1VIkvn0Eil3LfqsbfRJOoUypGyvbFWS1IEcQy3YkMRiM/edit) in the weekly sync between the Snowball team and Linaro is that the Snowball team will push their patches to external gits and we will help them set up a build with the patches on android-build.linaro.org. When the build is working we will create a branch for Snowball and the Snowball team can start to push their patches for review. In some case it might be necessary for us to just import a branch (without the review) because of the amount of patches delivered.

The latest news I have heard from the snowball team is that they have a number of blocking issues that prevents them for delivering the patches at the moment.
[2012/10/1 pfefferz] Since Patrik is blocked on this he has time to look at https://bugs.launchpad.net/linaro-android/+bug/1053320.
[2012/10/09 pfefferz] Looks like this won't be doable in this month because the patches to fix it will not be released by STE this month.

Meta:
Headline: BT and WLAN works on Stable Snowball ICS
Acceptance: BT and WLAN works on Stable Snowball ICS. Works is defined as, passes BT ands WiFi tests listed in: https://wiki.linaro.org/Platform/QA/TestCases/Android.
