Hi Thomas,

there are some initial efforts on-going in the community, such as [1] [2]
[3], and upcoming GSOC projects on implementing LWM2M amd dynamic linking.

However, this is not sufficient to get the whole nine yards. To have the
full picture, there lacks security/crypto aspects, software updates
(rrlated but different from firmware updates) and the automatic aspect,
which also include a network/transport/distribution aspect.

So in a nutshell: I think this aspect is of utmost importance indeed.
Having a really good way to do that could be a decisive advantage of RIOT
over other OS. In any case: the IoT will only become the IoT the day such
evolutive mechanisms are in place and usable.

I was thinking that this could/should be the main focus of RIOT in upcoming
H2020 project proposals for instance.

best,

Emmanuel
