An initial build of 2015.04rc3 will be in rawhide tomorrow, so please
test, I've enabled a few extra new devices and I'll be reviewing the
rest of the new devices over the next week or so.
Please test, once it's settled down and we're fairly certain all the
usual suspects haven't regressed we'll move it into F-22 before beta
starts to get locked down.
I noticed that -rc4 has also been build, so I've given that a test-run
on sunxi instead:
From a sunxi pov this build looks good.
Talking about enabling extra boards, from a sunxi pov I would like to
see the following enabled:
Common / widely available dev-boards:
Common / widely used top set boxes:
Common / widely used "hdmi sticks":
This leaves some special dev boards (official allwinner devkits
mostly), some uncommon top set boxes / hdmi sticks, and a bunch
of tablets. I would like to eventually enable tablets, but atm
without otg support being upstream they are not really usable yet.
Once we have the tablets usable, we should probably just do
a grep in configs/_defconfig for SUNXI and just enable all of them
to avoid having to manually keep a list. I'm fine with switching
to such a grep right away.
*) The Orangepi's do not have a dts upstream yet, but we do need to
enable them eventually, might just as well do so now.
