Current Dev Position: YP 3.3 M1 development

Next Deadline: 7th December 2020 YP 3.3 M1 build


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.1.4 should build this week now the CVE work has reached a logical point for the build.
  • Master has now opened up for 3.3 development and patches are merging.
  • Dunfell has seen a number of CVE report improvements (count of 202 down to 71 in the past three months), either through patches/upgrades or in corrections to the CVE database information, thanks Steve and all those who’ve helped.
  • The dunfell CVE improvements have also drastically improved the situation with master.
  • 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
  • The SWAT team has been re-established. A new mailing has been created as swat@... to support this and a number of member organizations have agreed to help staff this team. We are in the process of getting the process running again and in due course there will be the option of other community members being able to help too. The tools and processes are under review to allow us to optimise the process. Thanks to the members and everyone participating to make this happen!
  • There are big improvements underway to the autobuilder display of builds, for example, https://autobuilder.yoctoproject.org/typhoon/#/builders/44/builds/2744 which shows many more individual steps with more detailed information. There still needs to be improvements to the configuration markup to make best use of this (help welcome!) but this should significantly improve the autobuilder readability.
  • There are other ideas being discussed around autobuilder usability improvements such as remembering field history (patch submitted to upstream buildbot), better success/failure count reporting and potential replacement of the buildlog wiki page and autobuilder integration with a specific purpose django app.
