Source maintenance

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that since February there have been an increasing number of pull requests on the Marlin firmware github which remain unmerged. Requests for information on what changes or actions should be done to get them merged have gone unanswered. [Erik thankfully last week committed a few of the smaller changes.]

Now of course there could be quite a number of reasons for this - people away, other priorities, disagreement with the pull request itself, a move away from Marlin/Arduino to ARM, or a change in the level of support for Marlin firmware maintenance by Ultimaker.

I was just wondering if anyone can let us know what the story is (I'm not try to blame anyone here just understand the situation). I'm sure there are many in the community who would be willing to help out if the current maintainers are overloaded.

Rob.

I'm pretty much in charge of the LCD code right now. But because of internal Ultimaker priorities I'm delaying work on it. (I also have some internal test versions on my laptop that I need to merge and it's becoming a bit of a mess)

Cura has my priority right now.

So all LCD related pull requests will be dealt with, but not right now.

Also, a few requests are hanging on "waiting for response from submitter".

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
