SailfishOS - open source collaboration meeting 19.03.2020
#1
I don't know if everybody here is aware of these SailfishOS collaboration meetings so I thought I post this here. The following is from a meeting that took place on 19.03.2020:



09:06:53 <Jaymzz> #topic Official support for PinePhone and Xperia 10 || (5 min – asked by cquence)
09:07:05 <Jaymzz> #info Is there any information you can share with regards to these 2 devices and getting official Sailfish OS images for them?
09:07:12 <Jaymzz> And here comes the answer
09:07:25 <Jaymzz> #info We are currently looking the next possibilities for Sailfish X devices. Requirements for a new device in general is availability for the community and enough openness by the vendor to allow providing an image to the device, similar to what we have done with Sony devices in the past. The mentioned devices are both potential candidates, but currently we can not confirm any plans.
09:07:37 <Jaymzz> #info If you have alternative in mind in addition to the mentioned two devices feedback welcome.
09:08:15 <pasik> #info pasik, community
09:08:31 <Jaymzz> I don't see cquence online. Does anyone have anything to add? Otherwise we shall move on in a minute Smile
09:08:47 <Nico[m]> Well, my favourites are the 2 mentioned devices Big Grin
09:08:48 <leszek> Xperia 1 flagship device with SailfishX would be cool
09:09:00 <Jaymzz> for sure
09:09:31 <leszek> also could mean some effort will be put into the camera app which is very weak
09:10:00 <flypig> #info David Llewellyn-Jones - late sailor @ Jolla
09:10:02 <M4rtinK> yeah, I don't think is is possible to ingore that anymore
09:10:18 <bionade24> Jaymzz: So it's officially that Pine64 sent you some devices and Jolla evaluates to support them?
09:10:24 <pm-guest> some news on upcomming devices from OMP/Russian providers?
09:10:27 <vknecht> official support for Tama devices ? (XZ2 etc.)
09:10:48 <ApBBB> vknecht if you have bugs report them on github
09:11:05 <Jaymzz> bionade24: Where did you get that info from? Smile
09:11:12 <bionade24> Jaymzz: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?...2#pid62012
09:11:36 <veskuh_web> pm-guest We can't comment on customer device plans.
09:11:51 <Jaymzz> bionade24: can't really comment on that yet actually Smile But stay tuned!

Yeah, I decided to give them a nudge after reading the posts here that 2 devices were given to Jolla for porting/R&D Smile Let's hope for the best outcome out of this! An official port would be great! Smile

That was great idea. Thanks Smile

Given Sailfish runs pretty well on the PP already, if they decided to make this an official port i'd be pretty confident that it would be the most polished available OS on the device for a good while.
