Current Dev Position: YP 3.1 M2

Next Deadline: YP 3.1 M2 build date 1/20/2020


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.0.1 was released.
  • YP 3.1 M1 rc8 is in QA
  • YP 3.1 M1 took a record number of build attempts due to various issues which only appeared during the rc builds.
  • Despite a successful rc8 build (which still had reproducible build test failures) there are a number of concerns, particularly as there appears to be very slow builds for some ‘pathological’ hashequiv scenarios. There has been some progress over the weekend on identifying the causes of that and partially addressing them.
  • There remains a growing set of intermittent autobuilder failures which occur with varying frequencies. We’re struggling to find anyone with time/interest to resolve these and they are becoming problematic for reviewing/testing patches and  triaging builds.
  • The TSC is working on LTS plans, productive discussions have been had and a new policy on handling this and stable releases should be available in the coming weeks.
  • We are continuing to collect ideas for YP 3.1 in this document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UKZIGe88-eq3-pOPtkAvFAegbQDzhy_f4ye64yjnABc/edit?usp=sharing
  • Due to holidays in EU/US, the next status report will be sent in early January (likely 7th). If there is anything critical to report this will happen as needed.
