Hi Aaron,

Yes, lets meet up at the Summit in person. Let’s meet up from 3PM-4PM PST on Tuesday 12/7 at the Moscone Center outside the keynotes room 3008 on the third floor.

We can take one of the available rooms to sit and talk.

Let me know if this time works for all of you.

 

Regards

Kumar

Hi Kumar,

 

I'm willing and able to help on this front. While at the Summit, perhaps we can meet up and discuss things in person? And, I think whoever else that is interested at the Summit this week should meet together as well. We can report back on our conversations to this list.

 

I look forward to meeting with everyone.

Hi All,

As we discussed during the platform HSC meeting yesterday (Nov 29, 2021), we are calling on volunteers to own and drive the improvement of the definitions/terms used in the platform spec. Please feel free to respond to this list if you volunteer to own some of the content improvement.

The suggested list of items is below. We reviewed this during our meeting yesterday.

·       Platform Spec

o   Scope

o   Target Audience

o   Definitions of terms used

§  MANDATORY

§  DEPRECATED

§  RECOMMENDATION

§  Rationale

§  Application Notes

o   Release Cadence

o   Naming and Versioning

o   Life Cycle

o   Errata

·       Platform

o   What is a platform?

§  What is a platform-compatible implementation?

1.      For e.g. real motherboard, emulation, simulator like QEMU

§  What is platform-compatible software?

§  Picture/Diagram showing this

o   Explanation of the interoperability guarantees between an implementation and software

o   Dependencies between platforms if any

o   Performance assumptions

o   Branding

 

·       Definitions of OS-A Embedded, OS-A Server and M Platforms

o   Scope

o   Example products that fall into each category

Regards

Kumar
