===Cape Compatibility===
The idea of this project is to make the same code work with both BeagleBone Black and BeagleBone AI, using the same references to drivers for peripherals assigned to the same header pins between BeagleBone Black and BeagleBone AI. For capes, uBoot Cape manager will also be updated to support BBAI so that DT overlays will be automatically loaded during boot.

Weekly reports

  1. All weekly reports will be sent to the mailing list (as that is our primary support venue outside of live chat) on a single thread (to avoid e-mail thrash).
  2. They must be sent on Monday to allow for mentors to respond ahead of Wednesdays IRC meeting where all blockers will be discussed live.
  3. They must include the following sections:
    • Accomplishments
    • Resolutions to blockers
    • On-going blockers
    • Plans for the next week

Milestones

  1. Introductory YouTube video.
  2. Testing Capes on BBB (Comms, Servo, Load, Realy, Motor, and LCD4).
  3. Cleaning up code in beagle-tester and creating new examples.
  4. Creating new userspace examples for BBB.
  5. Testing new beagle-tester code on BBB.
  6. Finalizing BeagleBoard-DeviceTrees/src/arm/am5729-beagleboneai.dts.
  7. Testing the BBAI pin control using libgpiod.
