Background
==========

- Priority scale: High, Medium and Low

- Complexity scale: C1, C2, C4 and C8.  The complexity scale is exponential,
  with complexity 1 being the lowest complexity.  Complexity is a function
  of both task 'complexity' and task 'scope'.

  The general rule of thumb is that a complexity 1 task should take 1-2 weeks
  for a person very familiar with oFono codebase.  Higher complexity tasks
  require more time and have higher uncertainty.

  Higher complexity tasks should be refined into several lower complexity tasks
  once the task is better understood.


SMS
===

- Add support for Enhanced SMS (EMS) from 3GPP 23.040.  These SMS messages
  support a richer set of formatting elements, including bold/italic and
  font size selection.  Embedding images and sounds into the SMS is also
  supported.  This task should add support for receiving such SMS messages.

  Proposed solution is to convert such messages to HTML and embed image /
  sound data as embedded MIME in the generated HTML stream.  The EMS messages
  will have to be detected (by the presence of particular tags in the SMS)
  and signaled separately from simple SMS messages.

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C8

- Asynchronously acknowledge SMS DELIVER messages sent by the SMS driver
  to core using ofono_sms_deliver_notify().  This may require the struct
  ofono_sms_driver to be extended with one more function pointer like:
    void (*deliver_ack)(unsigned char *pdu, int len, cb_t cb, void *data)
  because currently messages are automatically acknowledged by either the
  modem (this is the case of some AT modems) or the driver right after
  ofono_sms_deliver_notify() and a failure to deliver at an upper level is
  ignored.  The PDU can be an RP-ACK or RP-ERROR message with optional
  TP-User-Content element, for example if returned from USIM Data Download.

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C2


CBS
===

- Support UMTS format for CBS messages.  This might be needed by some hardware
  which does not convert UMTS-formatted cell broadcasts to GSM-formatted cell
  broadcasts.  The UMTS CBS format can be found in 3GPP 25.324 Section 11.1.

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C2


SIM / SIM File system
=====================

- SIM Call History plugin.  New UICCs support four new SIM elementary files
  for storing call history information on the SIM: EFici, EFict, EFoci, EFoct.
  A plugin should be developed for oFono that will write to these files.

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C2

- Add support for SIM 'ready' notifications from the driver to the core.  Most
  modem manufacturers initialize the SIM (e.g. cache SIM file system, STK
  initialization, etc) internally before allowing the telephony stack to
  access these portions.  When the PIN is locked, this can lead to oFono being
  too fast for the modem and asking it for things before the firmware is ready.

  The proposal is to introduce a new sim function:
    void ofono_sim_ready_notify(struct ofono_sim *sim);

  When oFono determines the SIM PIN is READY, it checks whether
  ofono_sim_ready_notify has been called.  If it hasn't, then it stalls the
  initialization procedure (and calling post_sim) until
  ofono_sim_ready_notify is called.

  Priority: High
  Complexity: C2

- Support SIM authentication: SIM and AKA suites.

  Priority: Medium
  Complexity: C4

- Support SIM authentication: GBA_U suite.

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C4

- ISIM support

  ISIM is the SIM application for IP Multimedia Subsystem, specified in
  3GPP TS 31.103. The UICCs can support multiple ISIMs for different IMS
  identities.

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C4


Modem Emulator
==============

- Support CE4A extensions to HFP AG emulator. CE4A defines additional
  AT command extensions to the Bluetooth HFP AG standard. Refer to CE4A
  white paper: "AT-commands for Automotive Premium Phone Integration".
  Plugins can register additional command handlers appropriately to handle
  such commands.

  Complexity: C4
  Priority: Low
  Depends: HFP AG emulator

- Support HSP AG.  Similar to HFP AG emulator but implements the much reduced
  Bluetooth HSP AG profile.

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C1

- Support DUN networking over the USB transport.  This might require extra
  AT commands to be implemented in order to comply with general USB DUN
  expectations as there is no standard for the same.

  Complexity: C4
  Priority: Low

- Support Bluetooth SPP profile.

  Complexity: C4
  Priority: Medium

- Support new HFP 1.6 AG commands allowing to publish, select and connect audio
  codecs (AT+BAC, AT+BCS, +BCS, AT+BCC). This will need to interact with audio
  framework.

  Complexity: C4
  Priority: Low
  Depends: HFP AG emulator

- Integrate HFP AG emulator as a BlueZ service.
  Replace direct access to Bluetooth library by usage of the BlueZ service
  architecture.

  Complexity: C2
  Priority: Medium
  Depends: HFP AG emulator

- Add audio management to HFP AG emulator.
  Integrate HFP AG emulator to BlueZ and Pulse Audio.
  Add audio related AT commands support: remote audio volume control and in-band
  ring tone management.

  Complexity: C4
  Priority: Medium
  Depends: HFP AG emulator as BlueZ service

PPP
===

- IPv6 CP support.  To support IPv6 based GPRS contexts via PPP, GAtPPP
  needs to be updated to support IPv6CP from RFC 2472.

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C4


Location Services
=================

- Neighbor Cell Info.  Add dedicated atom, D-Bus API and atom driver(s) for
  Neighbor Cell information.

  This feature is not discussed in 27.007, thus manufacturer specific commands
  are required.

  Complexity: C4
  Priority: Medium


Supplementary Services
======================

- Closed User Group (CUG) support.

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C8

- Call Completion to Busy Subscriber (CCBS) support

  This feature is not discussed in 27.007, thus manufacturer specific commands
  are required.

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C8

- User to User Signaling (UUS) support

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C8

- Multiple Subscriber Profile (MSP) support

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C2

- CPHS Support.  This includes ALS and CPHS specific elementary files.

  Priority: Low
  Complexity: C8

- Call forwarding state handling change

  At the moment call forwarding states are not always correct. Any active
  conditional call forwarding should become quiescent while unconditional call
  forwarding is activate. If call forwarding unconditional is subsequently
  deactivated, all the quiescent forwardings should become operative again.
  I.e. No conditional call forwarding string should be returned while
  unconditional call forwarding is active even if they exist.

  If there is an successful attempt to activate/deactivate conditional call
  forwarding while unconditional call forwarding is active the conditional cache
  flag should cleared.

  Priority: High
  Complexity: C1

Voicecall
=========

- Dial strings. Include CLIR prefixes and 2nd stage dial strings in the
  DialString call property. Add dialstring accessor method to C API.

  Priority: Medium
  Complexity: C4

- Provide feedback of sent DTMF tones. Emit SendingTones signal if modem can
  provide approximate starting and stopping times for DTMF tones. Signal
  argument contains a string of DTMF tones to be sent, or empty string when
  all tones has been sent.

  Priority: Medium
  Complexity: C2

- Blacklisting. According to 3GPP TS 22.001 annex E, the TE must provide
  automatic calling repeat call attempt restrictions.

  There should be a method to manually reset blacklisting.

  Priority: Medium
  Complexity: C1

- DTMF Driver hints

  Currently multiple DTMF tones are sent to the driver in batches of up to 8
  characters.  For those drivers that can only accept a limited set of DTMF
  characters at a time (e.g. one), add a setting to the core that will change
  this batch size limit.

  Priority: Medium
  Complexity: C1


Sim Toolkit
===========

- Support of the BIP (Bearer Independent Protocol) proactive commands.
  The specification defines several bearer types. For now, only the packet data
  service bearer is considered.

	- OPEN CHANNEL: requests the terminal to open a data channel with
	parameters indicated in the command. A user confirmation may be
	requested by the SimToolkitAgent.
	- CLOSE CHANNEL:requests the terminal to close the specified data
	channel.
	- RECEIVE DATA:requests the terminal to return to the UICC data
	received on the specified channel.
	- SEND DATA:requests the terminal to send on the specified channel data
	provided by the UICC.
	- GET CHANNEL STATUS: requests the terminal to return the current
	status of all available data channels.

  Priority: Medium
  Complexity: C4
  Owner: Philippe Nunes <philippe.nunes@linux.intel.com>

- Support Setup Event List proactive command.
  To fully support the class 'e', the following events
	-Data Available event
	-Channel status event
  shall be monitored by oFono if part of the current event list.
  This list is supplied by the last SETUP EVENT LIST command.

  Priority: Medium
  Complexity: C2
