Thanks for raising the topic across the communities.
The question is probably how many people from the various projects are going to attend
Plumbers this year in Lisbon, so to create some critical mass.
project is planning a significant presence at the Open Source Firmware
Conference happening the week before in California (https://osfc.io/
), sponsoring the
event and submitting few engineering topics. This is another great opportunity to meet and
chat on Boot/Firmware topics as well.
The conf being in the US is a barrier for some, for various reasons.
Another upside of LPC miniconf is that you have the kernel people there,
who are taking over once the bootloader starts them, so it would give us
an unique opportunity to synchronize with their needs.
I had some exchange(s) on IRC and Alex Graf mentioned that rather then a
pure bootloader miniconf, we should also pull in OpTee and other such
"resident service provider" projects, since the kernel also communicates
with those and they're installed before the kernel takes over.
Having a boot miniconf the week after in Europe may be
a natural extension, but I'm wondering if people would be willing to travel and attend
two similar events in a row...
I cannot answer that, maybe the result of this email
