After discussing to remove the files from the wiki and only have them on github, we decided that the past workflow works good for developing hardware and we will keep them organized in the wiki.

davidak added a comment to T824: should we have a single git repository for every (compiled) tool?.
  • a program is easier to find on github
  • commit messages and issues are related to the one program
  • we can configure a CI (like Travis/Gitlab CI) to test, build and package the program, needs a YAML file per repo (there you select one language and get the build tools)
  • you can use git tags to tag releases
  • it's easier to use git bisect to debug in which commit a bug was introduced

davidak added a comment to T697: create firmware image creation script.

generally i like https://drone.io/ as a CI. it executes the build in docker containers, so you have a clean invironment every time but it is as easy as Travis. it is open source, you can install it on your own server that has docker (it runs in a docker container itself). they currently don't have a public instance, but will privide paid services in the future and probaply free for open source projects like in the past.

davidak added a comment to T187: Implement a system to update the various firmwares easily and safely.

Maybe this is the right time and place to suggest NixOS.
It is not used primarily in embedded devices and is also not very enduser friendly right now, but has some advantages like atomic updates (what would help here to easily roll back updates) and declarative configuration.
It is build around the Nix package manager, that can be also used on other Linux distributions and even OS X (theoretically also on Windows, but no one is working on that). They are working on reprodicible builds.
The community is very active and helpful! I use NixOS on most servers at home.
