Is there a README-like document for Qualcomm Android that outlines what Android features are not included?

It would be handy if there was a list somewhere of what is known to work and what doesn’t in any given build of Android for the DragonBoard 410c. As an example, AndroidThings provides a page of Release notes (https://developer.android.com/things/preview/releases.html) that provides some insight into known issues. Is there anything like this for Qualcomm Android?

There’s a ‘Release Notes’ here, under the Software - Android section. Sorry but there’s not a way to correspond the version of BSP used back to the version (or release date) on http://builds.96boards.org/releases/dragonboard410c/qualcomm/android atm. Linaro will work on trying to provide this info for future releases.

The release notes are linked from the middle of this page:
https://developer.qualcomm.com/hardware/dragonboard-410c/tools

It list both what should work and the known issues (although things like
"no Google Play Services" won’t be listed because that is expected of
any AOSP rebuild).

Thanks for the replies. It seems that the information is out there, just not put together very well. I did find the Android Release Notes document (lm80-p0436-12_android_release_notes-revh) on that Qualcomm page. It is dated 11/2016 and references the Android M Release. Perhaps this is what I’m looking for, but I have no idea how that document might be related to the Android build downloaded from http://builds.96boards.org/snapshots/dragonboard410c/qualcomm/android/128/ . Dates on the build 128 page are 1/9/2017, so they don’t match but it could be the right document. Hopefully, as vchong said, the Linaro folks will provide some better info in the near future.
