Agreed. Creating an OpenEmbedded roadmap with such projects, so that
everybody sees what they can contribute to, would help.
We cannot really assign people (like sometimes a company can) but we
can ask them to do what they like, and make them like what they do
(mostly by being nice, oh, and visiting tropical islands once in a
Typically, we have to spread our work more than a company does. I
think we did good over the last few years by attracting new developers
(despite the still steep learning curve). "But does it blend^Wscale?"
To extend a bit on the points still in my head from OEDEM:
- Tinderbox upgrades (automatically parse the collective build
database to extract useful information).
- Buildbot integration
- recipe tree namespace (BSP, ...) splitting in directories and/or overlays.
- automated tests and result reports on qemu targets
- automated tests and test reports on remote hardware board targets
- make available recipes from OpenEmbedded in Yocto(-OpenEmbedded)
- GCC 4.5.x
- merge Yocto/Poky improvements back to OpenEmbedded (checksum-tracked
progress from Richard's Poky proof-of-concept, cross-prelink)

Did you keep notes on how to setup such an autobuilder that you can
share in order to easily scale up this effort?
