We need you to be present to clarify details in the topic, and to ensure the discussion is leading to the answers you are looking for! If you do not participate or your question/topic isn't clear enough it will be postponed. Also: Always ask for *more time than you anticipate your topics needs!!*

  • Name / IRC nick: David Llewellyn-Jones / flypig
  • topic: Community contributions to non open-source components
  • some details about the topic: There are a number of oustanding features and bug-fixes that community members have requested in some of the closed-source SFOS components. The message from Jolla is that they are often too busy to focus on them as revenue-generating work must take priority. However, Jolla apparently have an NDA that would allow community contributors to access internal repositories to help submit code and fixes. The topic is a request for Jolla representatives to give some more info about how this works, and for the community to suggest areas for contributions and how the scheme could be made more visible to others.
  • approx time needed: 15 mins
  • optional: if I'm absent, feel free to discuss, or move it to the next meeting as you prefer.

  • Name / IRC nick: Raymaen
  • topic: general problems with roaming on Sailfish OS
  • some details about the topic: There are a lot of questions about this topic on TJC. this question is tracked by Jolla, but since the tracking there have been 2 updates without patching this issue. In my opinion it is a huge problem that needs to be fixed as fast as possible, as it is something that makes Sailfish phones unusable as daily driver. What is the problem and why is it stil present? What can we as comunity do to help solve it? Shouldn't such critical bugs being patched as fast as there is a solution, no matter if it fits the update schedule?
  • approx time needed: 20 - 30 mins (depends on discussion)
  • optional: if I'm absent, feel free to discuss, I'm not that techsavy to understand everything, but i think the problem is clear described in the TJC question.

Nice that you decided to move this here from the previous pad - I think TJC will serve well in this purpose also, also good to have many different topics under the same roof. Meetings might get new people too?

@cybette I wonder about the outcome of the action items 2 and 3 from the September 23th meeting:
> 2. Jolla to possibly spare some engineering time and fix up the proprietary bits to at least not crash and burn on SIP
> 3. cybette to poke SIP/dialer guys in Jolla
Unfortunately SIP is still not usable using the latest Jolla update.

I would propose to add an old question from 2015:

Inclusion of Bluetooth LE SDK libraries

Bluez5 already included for some devices as tech preview, so it would be good to know when can we expect least tech preview SDK support. What blockers does it have, what kind of help could be done by the community in this matter.

With high possibility I will not be able to attend on the meeting, but if someone could represent this question that would be great. Please let me know in a comment if you could present it on the meeting, and I will add to the proposals.

topic: Xperia XA2 support details

some details about the topic: Which version of the Xperia XA2 will be supported exactly (model number)? There are many different variations across markets and single/dual-sim types, etc. Will the dual-sim version be supported (initially or maybe eventually)? Single sim versions are already difficult to find (in Sweden) while dual-sim versions are readily available. How about the Xperia XA2 Ultra? This is even more popular and readily available. It has the same chipset as the XA2 but a different screen size.

I feel it is important to clarify such questions now as the devices being supported may be hard to find later on when Sailfish XA2 goes on sale.

approx time needed: 5 mins

Will it support Sony Xperia XA2 Single-Sim H3123?!
