API, which was not merged and which is re-worked atm.
Also, sunxi-cedrus itself is not in a finished state and is not as
feature-complete to be merged. Anyway it might be something for
staging... Has there been a [RFC] on the mailing list at all?
Where can I find a list of TODOs to get it ready to be merged?
Assuming that the request API is in, we'd need to:
- Finish the MPEG4 support
- Work on more useful codecs (H264 comes to my mind)
- Implement the DRM planes support for the custom frame format
- Implement the DRM planes support for scaling
- Test it on more SoCs
Or something along those lines.
Lot of work to do
Well... If it was fast and easy it would have been done already :)
I see it seems to be dead, no commit in 1 year.
Yes, because the author did this during an internship, which ended ...
Afaik nobody picked up his work yet.
That's not entirely true. Some work has been done by Thomas (in CC),
especially on the display engine side, but last time we talked his
work was not really upstreamable.
We will also resume that effort starting next march.
Is it possible a preview on a separate Reporitory to start working on now?
Expecially to start porting everything done by FlorentRevest to mainline,
admitted you've not already done.
I'm not sure what you're asking for. Florent's work *was* on mainline.
