Current Dev Position: YP 3.4 M1

Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.2.4 is in QA and will be the final release in the 3.2 series.
  • We’re continuing to merge significant changes into master as patches are tested and reviewed. This included many version upgrades(thanks Alex) bringing us back up to date after the pause during stabilization.
  • The multiconfig changes in bitbake continue to cause problems, we could do with simpler test cases to reproduce issues rather than huge builds.
  • There is an effort underway to triage the remaining reported CVEs against master and improve our presentation with regard to CVE tracking.
  • We have patches in review to enable SMP for qemu for arm and x86 machines
  • We also have a proposal to change the default x86 QEMU emulation configuration to something more recent/modern
  • We appear to have serial IRQ handling issues with qemuppc and would welcome help from anyone with knowledge in that area.
  • We have switched some gnome components from gtk-doc to gi-docgen in line with upstream
  • Several of the PRServ rework patches have now merged (thanks Paul).
  • 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

We are working to identify the load pattern on the infrastructure that seems to trigger these.
