Current Dev Position: YP 3.3 M2 development

Next Deadline: 18th January 2021 YP 3.3 M2 build 


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.2.1 is in QA
  • YP 3.1.4 was released
  • YP 3.3 M1 is due to be built this week once patches currently queued stabilize
  • YP 3.3 development in master is continuing as patches are reviewed, tested and merged with a focus on stabilization for M1.
  • After patches due to merge imminently for M1, reproducible builds have taken a major step forward and we now have a specific exclusions list of packages which don’t build reproducibility. Thanks Alex for the work on this!
  • Python3-pytest and its dependencies have merged to core due to our desire for more automated package testing and the fact it's a dependency for several recipes we need in core. Thanks Tim!
  • CVE statistics have regressed slightly for master as we’ve changed the matching algorithms and more CVEs were ‘identified’ including several many years old and likely not relevant. We’ll work on resolving these over time but the trend continues to be a significant reduction over time.
  • 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
