[01:29:08] <mozmck> cradek: you around?
[01:29:16] <cradek> yep
[01:30:43] <mozmck> my component for serial comm with our stuff is somewhat complex
[01:30:44] <mozmck> it will consist of several files compiled together to make a userspace component
[01:30:52] <mozmck> is this something that we would be better distributing ourselves?
[01:31:31] <mozmck> instead of putting in the main repo that is - because it will probably need it's own makefile I would guess
[01:32:17] <cradek> hmm, I'm not sure about that. I think it would depend on how big/complex it is, and whether it requires any new dependencies
[01:32:56] <mozmck> I'm using libserial (c++ serial library) right now, although that might could be changed if I have to
[01:33:12] <mozmck> it will have at least one dialog box using gtk
[01:33:54] <cradek> is there some way it's very different from any other driver? we have lots of code that's specific to a certain product or a few products - that's an important part of the distribution
[01:34:32] <mozmck> I'm not sure, I just don't know how it would integrate with the current build system. May be easier than I know
[01:34:48] <cradek> I bet that's something jeff or I could help with
[01:35:34] <cradek> it's gpl2 compatible?
[01:36:25] <mozmck> Well, I think so, I guess I should ask Tom, but I would think it would be gpl2
[01:38:01] <cradek> ok that's definitely a requirement - when you verify that we should have a look at it with the other devs and board
[01:39:18] <mozmck> yeah, I'd better make sure on that.
[01:40:04] <cradek> I'm off to the shop - finishing up cutting the control panel for jr
[01:40:16] <mozmck> ok, thanks!
[01:40:36] <cradek> no problem, let's talk more later
