What Info Status prio effort estimate
Integration of latest bug-fixes from CERN e.g. fix for the double-buffer synchronization   10 2d
Usage of CMW 1.0.1 For the first: a 64/bit Installation should be sufficient choice-yes    
improve integration of beam process concept bug, should be part of the new release, needed for LSA testing purposes at the CRYRING choice-yes 5 1d
Migration script to update from 2.0.1 to the future version bug choice-yes 10  
link all required libraries statically in a deploy-unit bug choice-yes 7  
Usage of a suitable name for the context item bug choice-yes 7 1d
Validate the timing configuration file bug choice-yes 7 1d
Prevent irritating error message during start-up bug > tbd with cern choice-yes 1 1d

Integration of versioned etherbone/eca libraries -> CSCOTG etherbone is versioned only in the header files, not in the installation paths. ECA will be replaced by SAFT-lib which will be versioned / static linking! choice-no 7 1d
Instantiation file: device names may not contain '#' Bug 681 - Instantiation file: device names may not contain '#' choice-yes 5 1h
Seg.Fault if subscribe is done to a fesa-binary which runs without root privileges FESA-5699 (added, since it is a critical bug)   9 2d

Postponed for a later Release

  • integrate the so called "SAFTLib" () provided by the White Rabbit timing team (usage of a library that provides an interface to the initialization of the ECA unit etc)
  • integration of the alarm system into FESA: https://www-acc.gsi.de/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=661
  • integration of CMX metrics? Requires tools potentionally provided by a group different than CSCOFE
  • evaluation of integration of condition compiler to translate error messages: https://www-acc.gsi.de/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=651
  • Usage of CMW 1.2.1 (available as 64-bit version, -> CSCOSV)
  • Extension of XSD schema validation / CLX rules validation for CERN zone concept: bug
