Where can I find the latest version of the Devicetree Specification?

You can always find the latest released, as well as all older releases, in our GitHub repository:

Devicetree Specification release repository

How often is a new specification released?

We’re planning to make a v1.0 release by end of August, 2016, which will be up to date with current core DT bindings used by the Linux kernel.

A second major release is planned for December 2016 to cover new features.

Governance

Do I need to be a member to comment and send patches for the Spec?

No. Changes to the spec are proposed and discussed on a public mailing list and the source document is hosted in the Devicetree Specification project on GitHub.

You can find details about the mailing list and submission process in the Readme file.

What will membership give me?

Membership gives you a seat on the devicetree.org Technical Steering Committee (TSC). The TSC is responsible for handling governance issues, managing the technical goals, release schedule, and helping to define vision for future versions of the spec.

How is Linaro and devicetree.org connected?

Linaro kick started this process and is hosting devicetree.org under its organisation. devicetree.org membership fees are associated with devicetree.org only and not with Linaro membership. The membership proceeds go towards the defraying of Linaro’s costs for hosting devicetree.org.
