Registered by Michael Hope on 2010-10-18

Linaro has a few groups interested in picking up and the Linaro toolchain. These groups have different needs and want to consume the toolchain in different ways. Discuss lifecycle, support, ways of consuming, and the cost of supporting new consumers.

Whiteboard

Some of this overlaps with the Foundations discussion.

For background:
 https://wiki.linaro.org/WorkingGroups/ToolChain/Flyer

Agenda:
 - Lifecycle: what do we support and for how long
 - Types: Sources vs GCC 'source' vs package vs binary
 - Support: how, what cycle, what timing
 - Other ways of getting binaries
 - Cross vs native compilers
 - 'Deeper' releases past the consolidation release
 - Secondary projects
 - Flavours: architecture, soft, hard, libc
