Samer and Ray,
Thanks for the detailed info cloud functions. It’s very helpful to know what your development philosophy is for OS. It’s also nice that it aligns with what I’m looking for.
It is a non-goal of mine to create custom OS FW. I have no desire to create a special version that I somehow have to keep in sync with the main code as it evolves and addresses bugs. OS is going to become my irrigation controller and its job will be to reliability water my landscaping. If I found it necessary to go my own way, I’d probably start looking for different device. I’m a fan of the open source approach. I’ll contribute testing and make suggestions and, if get familiar enough with the main code, maybe even propose code changes for bugs or enhancements that you can use, modify or discard.
Thanks for responding to my questions as I go through the discovery and testing stage.
