For any request regarding efl please contact upstream(http://www.enlightenment.org/) first, but for tizen related you can bother maintainers and I, User:Pcoval and User:Seoz are two of them... And I would appreciate to work using jira bug tracker to make sure nothing is lost in the mailing list flow..



Tizen:Common team is expecting that developer forward their patch upstream first and track them, more details on the workflow is explained here :

Untracked patches will be just dropped on conflicts, so expect some regression in downstream profile when rebasing onto Tizen:Common.


1.12.2 is in :




while 1.9.3 remains in :

https://build.tizen.org/package/show?package=efl&project=Tizen%3AIVI =


As the date of today (2014-12-04) Tizen:Common is currently late to upstream efl which released efl-1.12.1, but the gap can be reduced once we define a plan.

Tizen workflow branches :

  • upstream : is latest upstream version supported by tizen
  • tizen : packaging files and downstream managed patches , branch will no evolve unless it's validated by architect this one is built by Tizen OBS
  • accepted : are just pointer to released version per profile (should point to tizen at a time)

Work in progress branches :

  • sandbox/pcoval/latest : is just pre integration job maintained on each stable release
 efl: 1.12.1 (NOV. 24)
 elementary: 1.12.1 (NOV. 24)
  • sandbox/pcoval/snapshot : is packaging over upstream's HEAD and could be refreshed on will

Now, several actions could be taken we just only to sort out the priorities

  • tizen's obs had an efl subproject it can be used to build snapshot to help upstream developers
  • Dropped downstream patches may cause regressions , so it would help to make sure they were needed or need to be reintroduced (please open bugs)
  • more ?


check :


gbs sr --help

All the packages will need to land in the same OBS prerelease project

 cd efl 
 gbs sr -t tizen_common #  then note the tag
 cd elementary
 gbs sr --tag $tag 
 cd theme  calc ...

Without it will cause this kind of issues :



Migration Test Plan

  1. User:Pcoval : Update efl + elementary sandbox/pcoval/latest branches to latest upstream versions.
  2. User:Seoz : Test Tizen 3.0 Common + efl-elementary(sandbox/pcoval/latest) on the vmware.
 Make a live usb.
     1. download image file.
         ex) http://download.tizen.org/snapshots/tizen/common/latest/images/x86_64-wayland/common-wayland-mbr-x86_64/tizen-common_20141204.1_common-wayland-mbr-x86_64-sda.raw.bz2
         link) http://download.tizen.org/releases/daily/tizen/common/
         link2) http://download.tizen.org/snapshots/tizen/common/
     2.A. flash usb with bzcat and dd.
         ex) bzcat -dc tizen-common_20141204.1_common-wayland-mbr-x86_64-sda.raw.bz2 | sudo dd of=/dev/sdc bs=2M; sync
     2.B. flash usb with bmaptool. (THIS DOES NOT WORK)
         ex) bmaptool copy tizen-common_20141204.1_common-wayland-mbr-x86_64-sda.raw.bz2 /dev/sdX
 Test with Odroid U3
     1. https://wiki.tizen.org/wiki/Quick_guide_for_odroid
     2. https://wiki.tizen.org/wiki/How_to_Build_and_Load_Tizen_on_Odroid_U3
 Install latest efl/elementary packages
     1. build efl and elementary with gbs
     2. boot up with live usb
     3. scp files into the live tizen
     4. install rpm packages
     1. Boot up with live usb
     2. Launch 'Weston Terminal' from Launcher.
     3. aul_test launch org.tizen.calculator
 Live usb info
     - all the accounts' password is 'tizen'
 How to test
  1. User:Seoz : Fix issues
  2. User:Pcoval : Check on IVI
  3. Propose the upgrade to Architects
  4. Freeze EFL in Tizen 3
 Hopefully adopt EFL 1.12

EFL works on current version of Tizen:Common if not file bugs


But if it helps, next version of EFL is in pre-release place (URL may change) the current one is :

http://download.tizen.org/prerelease/tizen/common/# tizen-common_20140903.1/tizen-common_20140903.1.20140904.125990/images/x86_64-wayland/common-wayland-mbr-x86_64/

https://build.tizen.org/search# efl for updated one. (latest home:prerelease:Tizen:Mobile:submit:tizen:* / efl)

This mean you can also the prerelease repo in ~/.gbs.conf

You can use this file as base too :


Sample App: Calculator

 source: https://review.tizen.org/git/?p=apps/core/preloaded/calculator.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/tizen



Only ico-uxf uses EFL.


Just build those projects in this order : make sure to checkout 1st to sandbox/pcoval/latest if present

 # review.tizen.org/platform/upstream/edbus # ? is it used ?
