* Documentation: libmm-glib
libmm-glib should have its own gtk-doc based documentation setup in
docs/reference. This task involves setting up the gtk-doc build under docs/,
as well as including all missing gtk-doc comments in the sources.
* Documentation: libmm-common
libmm-common is the common library used both by libmm-glib and the ModemManager
daemon. Some of its bits must be considered internal, like the server-side
specific code generated by gdbus-codegen; but lots of other bits are to be
considered public and therefore documented with gtk-doc. This task involves
setting up the gtk-doc build under docs/, as well as including all missing
gtk-doc comments in the sources.
* Documentation: debugging tips
Provide a section for debugging tips in the ModemManager documentation.
* GObject introspection
Either with libmm-common or libmm-glib, we should provide GObject Introspection
support for the libraries. libmm-glib is just a small layer on top of
libmm-common, so maybe the introspection can be done at libmm-common level
* Firmware
ModemManager should implement the Firmware interface if modems allow to change
firmware on-the-fly.
* Contacts
ModemManager should implement the Contacts interface if modems allow to query
and manipulate the contacts information stored in SIM or device.
* Probing time mitigation
Probing time may end up being quite long if we're checking support of a modem
which exposes multiple ports. It is specially bad if the modem exports a port
which is neither AT nor QCDM, as we use all our probing attempts before we can
export the modem in DBus (we do wait to get all ports probed before running the
initialization sequence, as we want to use the primary port for that always).
Therefore, looking for ways to mitigate probing time in the specific bad cases
is a good way of minimizing this problem. Some ideas:
** If one AT probing suceeds, don't allow timeouts in remaining ports when
probing for AT.
* AT+CMUX & Serial multiplexing
Some modes allow to use virtual channels set up over one single serial
interface, as defined at 3G TS 27.010. This allows devices with one single port
to get a virtual secondary port for AT commands while in connected mode, for
example to update the signal quality value or check registration status.
* Additional minor enhancements, fixes and general brainstorm
** Per-device log function? Something like mm_modem_log() and
mm_modem_port_log(), so that we include automatically the modem number
(and port name) in each log line.
** Do we really need function name, filename and line in the debug log?
** In the default MMBroadbandModem, check how we can know if we're sitting in
a rev0, revA or revB CDMA network. We need to expose the exact access
technology in the interface.
** Fix object names to show proper inheritance? For example:
- MMPort, MMPortSerial, MMPortSerialAt, MMPortSerialQcdm
- MMModem (instead of MMBaseModem), MMModemBroadband, MMModemPots
- MMBearer, MMBearerBroadband, MMBearerPots
** MMPlugin: do we really need a separate interface for the plugin? Why not
just assume that all plugins need to provide objects subclassing
** Test cases for CIEV responses.
** When a modem gets initialized for the first time it goes into DISABLED, but
it may really happen that the modem isn't really disabled (in low-power
mode, those which support it). Currently if you want to ensure that the
modem goes into low-power mode once detected, you need to enable the modem
and just after that disable it, so that the proper CFUN=0/4/7 is run. We
could probably run the disabling sequence, including power-off steps, as
soon as we end the initialization sequence.
** When a 3GPP modem is disabled, we run AT+CREG=0. That will just disable the
automatic registration checks and unsolicited messages, the modem will
still be registered in the network. AT+COPS=2 is the one doing manual
unregistration from the network, and we should probably include such step
in the 3GPP disabling sequence.
** serial-parsers: convert the v1 parser to a GObject.
