Current Dev Position: YP 3.3 Feature Freeze
Next Deadline: 1st March 2021 YP 3.3 M3 build
Next Team Meetings:
- YP 3.3 M3 is due to build soon, we are now at feature freeze
- M3 has not been built yet whilst the status of various pending patches was ascertained and several bugs investigated. A key runqueue bug in bitbake was finally identified and resolved, other seeming state manifest issues were traced to a bad patch. There is a performance regression which still needs debugging and fixing. We also need to get a better understanding of autobuilder load issues triggering intermittent failures although that may be deferred to M4.
- It looks like the rust addition patches will be deferred to 3.4, as will the PR server changes.
- Reproducibility is trending well for this release at 99.83% with a remaining intermittent issue in ltp due to be fixed imminently. Meson and ruby have intermittent issues, ovmf has a hardcoded path and much progress has been made in resolving the perf issues so hopefully that will be fixed soon. The only other issue is Go Language related.
We had a mention in Reproducible Builds newsletter: https://reproducible-builds.org/reports/2021-02/
- “Pending” state patch review is still needed, we have some really old stale ones which really need decisions to be made about their future. It would help a lot if recipe maintainers could review recipe patchsets and upstream them or remove them if they are no longer relevant.
- Intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur and are now at a record high level. 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
