Hi Cory, We mostly communicate through e-mail and this mailing list. We are both based out of San Francisco, CA, so we have met on occassion (I think 3-4 times in 2+ years?).
The short-term issue that I feel is most important right now is to have a sanity testsuite. My plan was to develop a set of scripts that would cover a large base of the functionality of the FreeIPMI tools. The scripts would do sanity checks on the output and such. A.B., could you describe what you were thinking of for the FreeIPMI testsuite. My ideas may be different than what you were planning. Long term IPMI 2.0 and SOL is certainly most important. I have already begun IPMI 2.0 development in the CVS branch "al_ipmi_2_0_branch". I am perhaps half-done completing the base code in libfreeipmi so that ipmi 2.0 work can be done in all of the tools. Admittedly this development is a bottle-neck. After it is complete though, IPMI 2.0 work can be done in parallel in the various FreeIPMI tools, which we be very welcome to have you help with :-) Al -- Albert Chu [EMAIL PROTECTED] Computer Scientist High Performance Systems Division Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory ----- Original Message ----- From: coly li <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Date: Thursday, December 8, 2005 9:47 pm Subject: Re: how to join the freeipmi development > Chu: > > In defact, I'm not very clear what could I do now.
