The DSDP projects have been adopted by commercial vendors since their inception, but a one-stop-shop packaged Open Source solution for embedded development has been an unfulfilled request up to now. In fact, there are multiple communities out there in Open Source, who are in need of a comprehensive method for bundling their stuff with an IDE. Eclipse and DSDP have the best qualifications for being that IDE.
In this talk, we will present D-Pack, the DSDP Packaging Project which is currently in the proposal phase. We will highlight some of the obstacles found such as the requirement to add external tools under GPL, as well as our vision for solving these. The talk will conclude with ideas how schools, universities, silicon vendors and other communities can make use of and contribute to the packaging effort.
