  • Topic: Ofono Updates
  • Some details about the topic:
    Sailfish uses the Ofono Telephony stack to communicate with modems. The version of Ofono use in Sailfish is quite old, and diverged from the upstream project quite a lot. This was possibly understandable when the upstream looked stagnant, however it seems to have had somewhat of a revival, and has pushed out several release lately. Would it be worth re-basing the Sailfish Ofono and plugins on top of upstream to reduce the divergence and future maintenance? I understand some of the reluctance to use upstream has been around the ell library, can you expand as to why this cant be used, it doesnt seem like a very large lib to include. I have had PRs on sailfish ofono to update it for quite some time, these were created by painstakingly cherry-picking each upstream commit that would apply against the sailfish version, but the longer the divergence remains, the harder this gets. Upstream has improvements for the quactel modem, many code cleanups and improvements, and maybe useful for other porters.
  • Approx. time needed: 10min
  • Substitute (optional):

Ofono on SFOS is definitely not the most stable version there is…

  • Name/IRC nick: cquence
