Key Status/Updates:

  • 3.4, M1 is due to build this week (but see below).
  • YP 3.1.8 was released.
  • A possible cause for some of the intermittent issues we’ve been seeing has been identified as some of the kernel patches in linux-yocto, particularly aufs. We’re investigating this and will likely hold M1 until it is resolved.
  • A second intermittent issue has appeared with the latest kernel upgrade on centos8 causing testsdk to fail. This will also likely block M1 as builds fail with the issue and we’d have to disable autobuilder workers to make a release build.
  • We have a 10th anniversary T-shirt and some other Yocto Project items (hoody, stickers, mugs etc.) now available at https://yoctoproject.org/shop (EU and Americas sources)
  • The multiconfig changes in bitbake continue to cause problems, we still need simpler test cases to reproduce issues rather than huge builds. The existing patches seem to fix some workloads and break others. Richard is trying to fix but trying to fix autobuilder issues and other problems and these are slow builds to debug.
  • Intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur and continue to be at record high levels. 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.
