Hi everyone,

I will prepare a presentation about the graphics stack together with
Grim. That's something I had thought about once we started making
plans to attend the meeting.
However, it seems that the basics of the Android 9 graphics stack is
something that all prospective attendees know already too well. I do
hope we can get some good progress in the forthcoming month, in order
to have new and meaningful material to discuss with you.

The research that GNUtoo is doing around the boot sequence (BL1,
u-boot, etc.) is quite interesting, from both the technical as well as
the freedom point of view. A small presentation on that would be welcomed.

Since we will be investing some time to create these presentations, I
think we should gather all the support material (e.g. slideshows) and
share it on Replicant's wiki.
While researching about the graphics stack I got into several bits of
really relevant information that were only available on conference
slideshows and nowhere else (thank you XDC participants!).
