Attendees: Andrew, Ian, Bart, Keith, Tyler, Peter

## <a name="CanBusLinuxDriver"></a> [[CanBusLinuxDriver]]

Ian banged on the driver with help from Keith and Bart, but with little success. By the end of the meeting, we had finally decided to rewrite the bugger to:

- Make the driver specific to the MOPS board and i82527 chip.
- Simplify: remove unnecessary cruft.
- Present one device which uses all fifteen message objects for message buffering.
- Phase 1: work without interrupts, Phase 2: interrupts and `select()` support

_Ian rewrote the driver the next evening (its `uncanny`!), proving that simplification is the way to go._

## <a name="Cantalope"></a> [[Cantalope|PsasCantalopePage]]

Tyler and Peter made great progress on a command line tool to talk to the [[CantalopeHardware]] through the serial port. We saw message traffic from the [[SjaCanTestNode]]!
