ysionneauah, you renamed "milkymist" to "m-labs"10:55
ysionneauit will break a lot of links :/10:56
ysionneaushould we stay on #milkymist? or are we moving to some brand new shiny #m-labs ? :)11:16
ysionneauI wonder what's the purpose of all those renamings11:19
lekernel'milkymist' refers to milkdrop-on-fpga. the scope of the project has quite changed since then :) and yes, there is #m-labs11:23
ysionneauthat's right, m-labs fits better to describe the "entity"/bundle that does the different projects: Mixxeo/Migen/MiSoC/Milkymist SoC11:25
ysionneauit's just that by renaming things and changings channels/urls (github) usually you lose visibility11:26
ysionneauyou might lose a few interesting people hanging in here when moving to m-labs11:26
lekernelbetter do that well before the mixxeo launch :)11:26
lekerneland this channel is not closed yet11:27
ysionneauhum, you're right I guess11:27
ysionneauhow is it going for Mixxeo btw?11:27
lekerneldoing fine :) now most of the basic things work: 720p60, runtime resolution switching without bugs, etc.11:28
lekernelindustrial design is making rapid progress those days11:28
ysionneauyou got out of the edid/whatnot/multi-standard resolution declaration hell?11:29
lekernelafter I that I need to design the front panel board (with AMOLED display and controls)11:29
lekernelyeah, I have a rather simple solution that seems to work fine... but tested on 2 linux + 1 mac os computers only so far11:30
ysionneauok, it's on the right track then :)11:30
lekernelmac os works particularly well; when you switch resolution on the mixxeo it automatically picks and enables the right one :)11:30
ysionneauwhat sort of standard to drive amoled display?11:30
ysionneauit's not dvi is it?11:31
lekernelno, it's that I¬¬¬ MIPI crap... I managed to get docs, but it's been difficult11:31
ysionneauarg, another warm hell-ish interface to come11:32
lekernelconfidential, asks for expensive I¬¬¬ subscription fees, etc.11:32
ysionneauI hope you won't have legal issues whith shipping a product which implements such an interface11:32
lekernelI have not signed anything :)11:35
ysionneausometimes that's the legal issue :p11:36
ysionneauyou having signed or paid :p11:36
lekernelin that case, all they have is copyright, trademarks and patents11:36
lekernelcopyright and trademark won't be a problem - I'm not distributing their docs nor branding stuff as MIPI11:37
lekernelpatents, maybe11:37
ysionneaudo you feel you have anough people interested in Mixxeo to start production?11:40
ysionneausome nice guy sent me a big list of forum about VJ11:40
ysionneaumaybe you already know most of them11:40
ysionneauforums/groups/blogs/facebook groups11:41
ysionneauI'm forwarding it to you in case you want to do some advertising11:41
sh4rm4hmm... https://github.com/milkymist -> 40411:50
larsccan't you setup redirects on github?11:57
lekernelthere are redirects for the repositories, e.g. https://github.com/milkymist/misoc but not for the organization page12:04
larscI see12:06
ysionneauah great! so direct links to old repositories still work12:09
