Subject Re: Collecting Specs for UAs

Volkan, I probably should have taken a look earlier, but each device needs it own JIRA and
entry. For example:

You have this as Samsung SM-N series. But when I look at the user-agents, I see the following

SM-N7502, SM-N7505, SM-N9007, SM-N900W8

So what we can do is treat these tickets as parents. We then have to look at the all different
models in the series and:

1) Check if they are already in the DDR
2) If not, create a sub task for the model, put in the user agent and the specs

As for the specs, just search google. For example: 'SM-N7502 specs':

Once that is done, we can add them to the DDR.

I can help with this. I think if we each take a series, we can kind of divide and conquer.
Just send me a message and I should be able to assign a series to you so no one else takes
it. And then we just have to work our way thru the lists.

 Subject: Collecting Specs for UAs
Hi all,

The entire UA collection tickets (DMAP-94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 100, 102) I have
submitted to JIRA are being marked as NeedsSpec, which is fine. In the
explanation, I am being told that I need to collect the following
properties for each UA:

  - id
  - vendor
  - model
  - marketing name
  - resolution-x
  - resolution-y
  - pixel-density-ppi
  - release-year
  - default-os
  - hardware

I have some questions regarding these properties:

  - How other people collect this sort of information? Is there a certain
  set of steps that I can follow? I was considering writing a crawler on top
  of a web-based proprietary UA resolver, would that be ok considering the
  licensing issues?
  - Is there scheme am I supposed to follow for the *id* attribute? Or
  something descriptive would be just fine?
  - *resolution-x/y* means the width and height of the screen in pixels,
  - How do we calculate *pixel-density-ppi*?
