Re: Post 2.3.0 PR merging

Simon Glass
 

Hi Anas,

Less scientifically I just did some reviews and perhaps half of them already had one approval. So presumably they were blocked. I guess you are saying it's only a third. OK. But that's a lot. Also with two reviewers, people can be somewhat less careful...

How do you deal with the case of people being happy with it but wanting review from someone else before approving? I saw a few where it seemed no one would take the plunge.

Regards,
SImon

Hi Simon,

 

Not to my knowledge, no. But perhaps Ioannis or Anas know if it’s also documented elsewhere. 

 

Regarding the “stamp of approval” that was mentioned earlier in the thread, I think we could adopt a middle ground. If the person with merge rights is reasonably knowledgeable about the area of the change, and understands the implications, their +1 could count even if they are not a maintainer. I feel that in many cases this could unblock PRs without compromising the quality of the code being merged.

Hi Carles,

 

OK I see. Since you called out the 2-approver change as a cause of the bottleneck, I'm assuming there is data available on this.

 

I was looking around for discussion about the decision. The closest I found was here. Is there something else?

Hi Simon,

 

A decision like that would need to go through the TSC, and in order to be able to vote we’d need to have clear stats on how many PRs are actually blocked by this policy. I was thinking about this recently, and given that those in Zephyr with merge rights can in fact add their +1 and they typically rely on a maintainer’s review to decide whether to merge a PR or not, this might not have as big as an impact as I originally thought.

 

That said, I believe we need a new GitHub filter to help us. Right now, we have one that lists PRs that are approved, passing CI and ready to merge, but what we need is one that shows all PRs that are partially approved (i.e. a single +1) and passing CI. Then those of us with merge rights could go over those regularly (like we do for the former) and, provided there’s a +1 from a maintainer, we could take one additional look at the PR, approve it and merge it.

 

I’d very much like to hear the opinion of others with merge rights in this thread.

We currently have 170+ Pull Requests that pass CI but require one or more approvals in order to be merged, in part due to the fact that we have increased the minimum number of approvals required from 1 to 2.

 

Perhaps given the situation this should be reversed?

RFC: API Change: watchdog: wdt_feed error codes

Peter A. Bigot
 

Following https://docs.zephyrproject.org/latest/development_process/api_lifecycle.html#stable we have a need to make a small change to the watchdog API that meets the criteria of "...forces users to modify their existing code in order to maintain the current behavior of their application".

Please see: https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr/issues/26708

New topic branch: topic-usb

Carles Cufi
 

Hi all,

The current subset of USB device classes implemented by Zephyr is now fairly complete, so we are ready to tackle the long needed cleaning up of the USB structures and classes that the USB maintainers have wanted to do for a while now.

I have therefore created a topic-usb branch to prototype and later implement the required changes in the USB API to finally clean up the cruft that has been building up over the years, and add support for the type of functionality that has been long requested but we never had the time for.

If you are interested in the changes to the USB structures and APIs that will be discussed in this branch, please take a look at the Pull Requests targeting it:

Re: SDK 0.11.4 Release

Stephanos Ioannidis
 

To elaborate, there is a critical bug in the GCC 8.3.0 (included in the Zephyr
SDK 0.10.3) that causes it to emit incorrect instructions for the ARC targets.
(see https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr/issues/26659)

This issue seems to be fixed in the GCC 9.x, so we need to release a new SDK,
that is compatible with the 1.14 LTS release, with GCC 9.x (or alternatively,
update the 1.14 LTS so that it can be used with the latest release of Zephyr
SDK, but I am not sure how feasible that would be).

Stephanos

p.s. another reason to use the Zephyr version number as the base for the SDK
version numbers (cc @tejlmand)

Steval drone flight control support

Brenton Chetty
 

Hi, I've noticed that the steval_fcu001v1 board is supported on Zephyr, however I could not find an example with the flight control software. Does anyone know if any work has been done with regards to this integration. If not, could you please point me in the right direction with regards to how to integrate flight control with zephyr.

With regards
Brenton

API meeting agenda: 2020-07-07

Peter A. Bigot
 

Carles has asked me to stand in for him again in coordinating this week's API telecon.

Topics include:

https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr/pull/26305 adding mode flags to fs_open

https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr/pull/26173 detecting Arduino-style reset requests on CDC-ACM

I'd also like to run through the 19 items remaining in triage, moving some to To-Do, In-Progress, or On-Hold/Abandoned.  I've already moved the SFDP one to In-Progress; there are others that I think no longer need to be on the to-discuss queue.

Re: [Zephyr-users] [Zephyr-devel] Post 2.3.0 PR merging

Nashif, Anas
 

Agreed. Those who can merge, should take 2 approvals and all other checks as a sign that it is ready to merge, no need for the approval of the person who merges, although a 3rd approval might give the PR a strong “Go”. This is actually what we agreed on 😊

Hi Charles:

 

This just my personal opinion on the subject. Two approvals is the right thing to do and what the TSC approved earlier this year.

 

BUT, if the second +1 is just a rubber stamp approval of the maintainer’s +1 then there is no point having two approvals.

 

The second +1 should come from someone who is: knowledgeable in the area, has studied the changes, and approves.

Right now, we have one that lists PRs that are approved, passing CI and ready to merge, but what we need is one that shows all PRs that are partially approved (i.e. a single +1) and passing CI. Then those of us with merge rights could go over those regularly (like we do for the former) and, provided there’s a +1 from a maintainer, we could take one additional look at the PR, approve it and merge it.

 

I’d very much like to hear the opinion of others with merge rights in this thread.

 

Regards,

 

Carles

Hi all,

We currently have 170+ Pull Requests that pass CI but require one or more approvals in order to be merged, in part due to the fact that we have increased the minimum number of approvals required from 1 to 2.

 

Perhaps given the situation this should be reversed?

Re: Backport NRF UART fixes to 1.14.x #lts

Hi Ryan,

 

This PR is approved and marked Ready in the Backports project.

This means that it will be bulk-merged with others as soon as the next release in the 1.14.x series is prepared.

 

If you are interested in pushing such release I’d encourage you to join the Bug triage and Release Readiness meetings on Tuesdays.

You can see the details in the TSC group in lists.io:

Thanks,

No reviews on PRs

Becker Markus
 

Hi Zephyr team,

 

I have had PRs to Zephyr that have been reviewed immediately and got merged rather quickly. Some PRs however are not getting a review although (or because) there are many reviewers assigned. What is the process to trigger reviews on PRs that have been around for some time with reviewers assigned, but no reviews happening?

 

According to https://docs.zephyrproject.org/latest/contribute/index.html#pull-requests-and-issues it’s to bring up the topic on the mailing list.

 

Specifically, the PRs in questions

https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr/pull/26193

https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr/pull/25627

 

BR,

Markus

Re: Measuring LiPo on Adafruit nRF52 Feather

Look at samples/boards/nrf/battery, and boards/arm/thingy52_nrf52832/thingy52_nrf52832.dts which adds the voltage-divider compatible that describes the circuit connected to the ADC input.  You'll need a similar node with the resistances specific to your board.
