[edk2-devel] TianoCore Community Meeting Minutes - 2/4

Michael D Kinney

Hi Bret,

Please share the proposed adjustments. If we can use a well supported tool that allows us to remove the C parser from ECC, then I think that would be a big improvement.

@Desimone, Nathaniel L<mailto:nathaniel.l.desimone@...>, I’m interested in mentorship for the GSC project. Would like to talk offline about potential projects and past experience.

RE: ECC, we’re internally evaluating ‘uncrustify’ as an option to 1) check for formatting violations and 2) provide a tool to automatically format code prior to submission. There are changes that we’ve made to the tool to support ECC, but there are some small places that we’re coming up short. What would be the appetite to evaluate our progress and discuss possibly adjusting the ECC to be more flexible where we’ve come up short?

- Bret

1. Nate - Google summer code (sponsored internship program run by google). Need some mentors to mentor the interns. Tianocore open source needs to apply. Application deadline Feb 19th. We need to develop interesting ideas for summer projects. Nate will start an offline thread to discuss ideas for projects. Couple of people have expressed some interest in becoming mentors.
Community Action: If you are interested in either mentoring or have a project idea, please send an email to (nathaniel.l.desimone@...<mailto:nathaniel.l.desimone@...>).
