Combining arduino-udev with legacy code


Hi everyone,

I would like to combine arduino-udev with the legacy code in order to have a unique name of every brewpi.
The idea of arduino-udev is to call a python callback script on device detection. The script then asks arduino for its name. Arduino sends its name back and this name is then used to create a symlink to the tty device.
For this reason I would like to ask, especially Elco, where could be the best position to fit a few bytes for the name. Somewhere inside EepromFormat?



Probably, at the end. But we discontinued the arduino version in 2015. I don’t want to invest time adding code or offering support for a code base I stopped working on 4 years ago.
