completed by: Freeman Lou
mentors: Siarzhuk Zharski, Gerasim Troeglazov
The goal of this task is extending functionality of Haiku "listusb" commandline tool. This is a coding task, for this task you will need to have a Haiku build environment setup, and be able to compile either Haiku or standalone listusb project to implement required funtionality and check if your solution works. The basic knowledge of GIT SCM is also needed.
- Install Haiku either on real hardware or in Virtual Machine (BTW, I can assist installing VirtualBox so it is obviously recommended by me);
- Take familiar with the Human Interface Devices specification;
- Get either the Haiku source tree or standlanoe listusb project sources build it and find solution to add dump possibilitiy for HID Class Specific descriptor and reports;
- After completing this task, please provide us with the git-formatted patch implementing your fix.
