The purpose of this talk is to describe how the TmL – Tools for mobile Linux – project became the new Sequoyah project, which aims to host the efforts of the Eclipse open source community to support mobile software development.
- A description of the objective and scope of the Sequoyah project and how it stands within DSDP;
- Where the name “Sequoyah” comes from (hint: it is not a tree);
- How Sequoyah intends to support mobile software development and help the mobile industry;
- How Sequoyah relates to the Pulsar Mobile Industry Working Group;
- How Sequoyah relates to other Eclipse projects that address mobile development, especially within DSDP;
- An overview of the components inherited from the former TmL and their purposes, namely: the device framework (formerly emulator framework), VNC viewer, protocol framework, /proc tools, device proxy (deprecated) and localization tools;
- Ideas and roadmaps for 2010;
- How to get involved with the project.
