  2. Log persistence/easing gathering of logs (10 mins -- asked by thigg) (flypig, 08:06:58)
    1. <thigg> The journalctl Logs are rolled over quite quickly in Sailfish OS. (flypig, 08:07:11)
    2. <thigg> It is likely that some bug reports are struggling to collect logs because when the person is back home and thinks about getting those logs, they are gone already. (flypig, 08:07:20)
    3. <thigg> For example see https://forum.sailfishos.org/t/browser-bookmarks-does-not-show-typing-hides-keyboard/13579/3 (flypig, 08:07:34)
    4. <thigg> It might be helpful to collect logs for a longer period of time (e.g. one week)? (flypig, 08:07:41)
    5. <thigg> They still might forget this, thus maybe we could add a userfriendly button somewhere to save the whole journal with a dedicated name? (flypig, 08:07:49)
    6. <thigg> (Maybe even able to select a broad category, e.g. bugs with connection, in browser,...). That way the gathering of logs would take ~30 seconds for the user and it is way more likely they do it. (flypig, 08:07:58)
    7. <Jolla> Log collection unfortunately remains tricky for many reasons, not least the need to remove private data before sharing them. We have several help articles related to collecting logs. (flypig, 08:08:29)
    8. https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360013910599-Collecting-basic-logs-from-a-Sailfish-device (flypig, 08:08:39)
    9. https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4405752484242-Gathering-logs-related-to-audio-Bluetooth-and-phonecalls-from-a-Sailfish-OS-device (flypig, 08:08:44)
    10. <Jolla> The first article provides a script collect-logs.sh that can be used to simplify the process of collecting logs. (flypig, 08:08:49)
    11. <Jolla> The second article provides a script gather_logs.sh which is a little more complicated to run and with a focus on audio/bluetooth, but which will also make your logs persistent. (flypig, 08:08:59)
    12. <Jolla> We really like your suggestion to add a user interface for this. We have an internal task for improving the process, but no timeline. We're always open to nice suggestions like this. (flypig, 08:09:11)
    13. <thilo[m]>: "If someone could contribute a poc to bugger, i think that would help" (flypig, 08:25:02)

  3. VoLTE for Ports (10 mins -- asked by LSolrac) (flypig, 08:26:43)
    1. <LSolrac> I vaguely remember someone mentioning VoLTE for unofficial ports in the forums. However, I have not been able to see any talk about it again. (flypig, 08:26:53)
    2. <LSolrac> So I ask, is there a plan to implement a standard for porters to implement VoLTE in their devices? (flypig, 08:26:58)
    3. <Jolla> We discussed something similar back in May (see point 5) and it’s worth reviewing that answer. (flypig, 08:27:16)
    4. https://irclogs.sailfishos.org/meetings/sailfishos-meeting/2022/sailfishos-meeting.2022-05-26-07.00.html (flypig, 08:27:21)
    5. <Jolla> Back then we highlighted the eight layers of the Sailfish OS VoLTE stack: (flypig, 08:27:28)
    6. <Jolla> 1. Hardware adaptation: Sony proprietary. (flypig, 08:27:35)
    7. <Jolla> 2. modem_auto_config: Jolla proprietary. (flypig, 08:27:41)
    8. <Jolla> 3. ofono-vendor-qti-radio-plugin: Jolla proprietary. (flypig, 08:27:47)
    9. <Jolla> 4. ofono-modem-switcher: Jolla proprietary, Xperia 10 II only. (flypig, 08:27:55)
    10. <Jolla> 5. libgbinder-radio: https://github.com/mer-hybris/libgbinder-radio/ (flypig, 08:28:02)
    11. <Jolla> 6. ofono-binder-plugin: https://github.com/mer-hybris/ofono-binder-plugin (flypig, 08:28:08)
    12. <Jolla> 7. ofono: https://github.com/sailfishos/ofono/ (flypig, 08:28:14)
    13. <Jolla> 8. libqofono: https://github.com/sailfishos/libqofono (flypig, 08:28:19)
    14. <Jolla> We said at the time we intended to release 2, 3 and 4 to the hw:common repositories for use by porters. We've not been able to do this yet. (flypig, 08:28:25)
    15. <Jolla> It’s worth noting however that they're device-specific, so may not be useful for ports more generally. (flypig, 08:28:39)
    16. <Jolla> In terms of a standard, slava has made available an example ofono binder plugin extension, which is a template for porters to replace layer 3. (flypig, 08:28:47)
    17. https://github.com/monich/ofono-binder-plugin-ext-sample (flypig, 08:28:56)
    18. <Jolla> The extension interfaces are defined in the following headers. (flypig, 08:29:02)
    19. https://github.com/mer-hybris/ofono-binder-plugin/tree/master/lib/include (flypig, 08:29:08)
    20. <Jolla> Hopefully this can be of help to porters looking at this. (flypig, 08:29:14)
    21. fridlmue - community (sorry for being late) (fridl, 08:33:32)
    22. <Solrac[m]>: "letting layers 2,3,4 read a configuration file (which I asusme might be similar to Slava's extension) to ease this for future builds might not be a bad suggestion?" (flypig, 08:39:46)
    23. <Thaodan>: "Besides modem switching pretty much anything else is specific to the vendor of the soc" (flypig, 08:40:11)

  4. Untracked bug reports (5 mins -- asked by thigg) (flypig, 08:41:05)
