General Hardware Enablement of WiFi & Bluetooth using Trim Slice
A number of ARM boards have features that are not fully supported in Fedora.
Note: Before starting this project, you must identify the features and boards you are targeting.
From Peter Robinson:
Most of the devices we support actually only use a small amount of the HW that is actually on the device. Whether it be simple like graphics or sound or more interesting like gyro, gps, FM radio. There's also some other devices that would be interesting to support like the snowball, origen, or even the Vivaldi Tablet. Some definitely need FW and hence probably packaging if it's not in the linux-firmware dumping ground
Expected outcome: The identified features will be supported on the identified board(s) within Fedora.
Skills required: packaging, kernel/module building, testing
Maximum number of students: One per hardware feature to be supported
