DSDP/DD/Phone 13-July-2006

Rough plans for meeting - please ignore until this message is removed


  • General topics
    • Next Meeting: Wed, Aug 2, 10 am PT
  • Technology subgroup updates
    • Doug's comments
      • Most groups are making progress on requirements. A few groups don't have anything: Debug View, Launching, Source Lookup. Are the group owners unable to work on these?
      • Lots of dsdp-dd-dev discussion on Memory, Debug Model, Editor, Breakpoints, and Disassembly
        • As we talk about updates, we should talk about next steps for prototyping. Doug's questions:
          • What technology items are dependent on the debug model? It seems taht these items are waiting somewhat until WR's model implementation can be contributed. How can we make the changes generic so that they can work with CDT's current debug implementation and the proposed DD implementation?
    • Debug view - Paul Gingrich
      • Progress?
    • Memory - Samantha Chan
      • See Wiki for subgroup meeting notes.
      • Next steps?
    • Expressions & Variables - Ken Ryall
      • No change from last meeting?
      • Next steps?
    • Registers - Kirk Beitz
      • Comments posted on Wiki
        • Next steps?
    • Breakpoints - Ewa Matejska
      • Comments posted on Wiki
      • How does Nokia's proposal fit in with two debug models? Nokia's status?
      • Freescale's HW Breakpoint implementation plans? (From email thread)
      • Next steps?
    • Console - Aaron Spear
      • Comments posted on Wiki
      • WR terminal view contribution approved - working on internal cleanup now.
    • Disassembly - Patrick Chong
      • Comments posted on Wiki. Lots of dsdp-dd-dev discussion.
      • Seems to be some overlap with Editor
    • Views - multi-context, pin/clone, update policy - Darin Wright
      • Proposal posted - see Wiki
      • Update? What about two views of the same kind? Is clone also going to be covered?
    • Debug Model - Pawel Piech
      • Prototype to be committed before next meeting
    • Launching - Pete Nichols
      • Progress?
    • Editor - Ewa Matejska
      • Seems to be some overlap
    • Source Lookup - Pawel Piech
      • No progress yet. Will work on after debug model implementation is committed.
    • SPIRIT - Aaron Spear
      • "SPIRIT for Debug" Steering group created
      • GDB XML files?
      • Next steps (from Aaron's email)
        • Document exactly what areas of SPIRIT need to be extended for our purposes. This should be easy since Anthony already did this in the requirements doc.
        • Draft a spec with our proposed extensions and create working examples of them.
        • Create tools that use the extensions
        • Propose these extensions formally to be incorporated into SPIRIT
