What is your project?

Project name

The title of the wiki article will be the title of your project.

Project Description

Short 10-20 sentence description that tells readers:

  1. What are you making?
  2. For whom are you making it, and why do they need it?
  3. What technologies (programming languages, etc.) will you be using?
  4. In general, feel free to add as much content as you think is valuable. Consider this template as the bare minimum.

Project Scope

Convince us, in 5-15 sentences, that you will be able to successfully complete your project in the timeline given. This is usually where people describe their past experiences, credentials, prior projects, schoolwork, and that sort of thing, but be creative. Link to prior work or other resources as relevant. Provide references such as professors who know your work if you like.

What license(s) does your project use?

For code written for this project, we will use GPLv2. When the project is based on an existing open source package, the license of that package will be used.

Existing code is primarily GPLv2 and all kernel code should be so. Some developers use other FOSS licenses, such as MIT, LGPL, etc. There are some TI codecs available for use on the platform that are provided under publicly-available binary-only licenses as well as other binary firmware builds distributed as part of the Linux kernel, but these are discouraged from being used as part of any student project.

Generally you should avoid using the GPLv3 license if possible.
