Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.2 rc2 is out of QA, approved by the TSC and should be released imminently.
  • Happy 10th Anniversary Yocto Project! Jefro presented a video to celebrate at ELC-E which is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnhD5CRmfOw

He is collecting more video clips, quotes and photos to put on a page on the website so please send them over to him, it was great to see people past and present from the project.

  • The Yocto Project Summit was a success, thanks to everyone who helped organise or participated.
  • Unfortunately, intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur. You can see the list of failures we’re continuing to see by searching for the “AB-INT” tag in bugzilla: https://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=AB-INT
  • A YP 3.3 planning document has been created for ideas about what may happen in the YP 3.3 release (assuming there are people to work on the items):
