D.1 :

Hello, this past week I’ve worked on separating the Septentrio GPS drivers in PX4 after discussing this approach in the previous developer call. There is already a pull request open on GitHub. It already compiles and runs but isn’t finished yet. I would love to discuss the approach and get some feedback on what can be improved. It doesn’t need to be too technical as I know that’s not the purpose of these calls. I just want to know whether I’m on the right track.

I do have two more technical questions which may be nice to discuss as well. The first one is how is driver startup coordinated between drivers? The second one is what code should be reused? The current PR reuses an RTCM parser from the drivers submodule for example.
