I finally catched up with Gammu backlog from holidays and now it is time to
move it a bit further.
During this week I set up CDash instance for acquiring results of
automatic nightly checks of Gammu. Each night Gammu is build on several hosts
(currently Debian x86_64, Debian x86, SUSE x86_64 and crosscompilation for
Windows on Debian) and results are posted to the dashboard. If you have
some other architecture which could participate in testing, you are welcome to
contribute! It is simple - just checkout svn, create build directory and
configure there Gammu using cmake. You can enable coverage tests
-DCOVERAGE=ON). Then just run every night
make Nightly for regular testing
make NightlyMemoryCheck to do dynamic allocation analysis. There is more
detailed documentation in sources (
Thanks to this, I can hopefully sooner spot regressions and possible problems
on different architectures.
With upgrade of Mantis, new feature called roadmaps arrived. I started to
use it for planning features in future Gammu releases, so you can see what
bugs should be fixed in future releases in Gammu roadmap. Currently there
are not much things planned, because till now I had to focus only on
bug fixing, but I think with 1.21.0 we have reached much better quality than
in past releases and now is time to do some important changes in the core.
Nokia phone required
As you can already see in roadmap, I plan some bigger changes to Gammu core.
I currently have on Sony-Ericsson phone and I would not be able to properly
test how these changes will affect Nokia drivers. So for start I will need at
least Nokia Series 40 3rd edition phone. Nokia 6233 (or 6234) currently looks
as a reasonable choice, but if you have any hints for cheaper one with
similar features, just drop me an email.
Perfect would be if somebody would have half broken phone (I do not intend to
use it for anything else than Gammu development, so broken camera, speaker,
microphone or display does not really matter) and will be willing to donate it
to me. If this will not work out, I'll have to buy used one and I will try to
collect funds for this. If you want to contribute, check my
donations page for possibilities.
