General configuration Task Force

Dear maintainers,

Last Friday we had an offline discussion with some RIOT people about he lack of a mechanism to configure Kernel parameters as well as application specific configurations (private keys, timer values, etc). Although RIOT is configurable via CFLAGS, there's no way to (easily) expose all configurations and tweak RIOT in a centralized manner. As shown, other OS are using several strategies in order to accomplish this (KConfig, header files, etc).

I want to propose a "Kernel and Application specific configuration" Task Force to address these issues. What are your feelings about this? Anyone (besides me) is interested to work in this topic?




Sounds fun, count me in!


+1 I'm in!


count me in as well!

Cheers, Martine

+1! I have a to-do to document such parameters for CoAP. This kind of tool could provide a systematic and easily repeatable way to share and use that information.



I would like to help out as well.

Sounds fun, would love to help with power management stuff here (if needed).

I am also interested to follow this after the release.
