Developers' Call, May 19, 2011

We will be having our monthly Developers’ conference call today.

Date: May 19, 2011
Time: 10 PM UTC (6 PM EDT, 3 PM PDT)
SIP: sip:[email protected]
IRC: #gnuradio on freenode

I am traveling and on a semi-holiday right now, and it is unlikely that
I
can make the call today. Johnathan C. will be leading it, instead.
Can
someone who is online today try to take good notes in the IRC channel
and
email me the log?

Agenda items:

  • Begin work on next for GNU Radio 3.5:

    • Add cmake build structure.

      • We want to start exploring using cmake instead of autotools.
        We
        should be able to have parallel build systems to work with until we
        figure
        out which one “wins” and then remove the other. This might take a few
        version cycles.
    • add gr-digital. I’ve been working on some enhancements to some of
      the
      digital modulation blocks. We will add this to gr-digital and deprecate
      their counterparts in gnuradio-core. This is the first step in splitting
      up
      the core into more appropriate components.

    • adding uhd examples/apps. Start relying less on USRP code for all
      our
      examples; have gr-usrp/apps, gr-usrp2/apps, and gr-uhd/apps. I made some
      start on this and more needs to be done.

    • Work on making a consistent API and naming scheme. Based on M.
      Dickens’ suggestion. As part of the coding standard guide, we should
      make
      the block names and certain aspects of the API for each block clear (
      http://gnuradio.org/redmine/wiki/gnuradio/Coding_guide).

    • Start using Volk for gnuradio-core blocks. Need to ensure it works
      on
      the E100 and then start integrating Volk into blocks to improve
      efficiency
      of our code.

  • Some updates on the GR conference.

  • There has been a lot of discussion on the mailing list about the
    project.
    If anyone has any more to say to help us make development and
    contributions
    easier, we should talk about them.

Thanks!
Tom
