I mostly dumped the topics I had in my head, leaving out the codecs as
the obvious thing that people are already planning to talk about.

That said, there's been more interest in having proper Linux drivers
for camera capture IFs and ISPs and also a lot of feedback about the
issues I listed above. I'm afraid that if we don't start looking into
them early enough, we're going to end up in the same state as with
codecs where we're few years too late or even in the worst case just
the interest fading away. :(

I guess we could try to organize a separate session on another day for
this, though. +Sakari Ailus who might be also interested in this.

Best regards,
Tomasz
