Current Dev Position: YP 3.4 M2

Next Deadline: 12th July 2021 YP 3.4 M2 build

 

Next Team Meetings:

 

Key Status/Updates:

  • An issue with eSDK being host specific due to pseudo-native host dependencies has been resolved and this should resolve a number of bugs being reported by the community around use of the eSDK.
  • The prserv rewrite is still pending on resolving the issues with python asyncio.
  • We are continuing to make progress on the intermittent autobuilder failures. A race was identified in the qemu networking lock handling and there were some reproducibility fixes. Tweaks have been made to the autobuilder configuration such as avoiding key generation in more cases which it is believed may have been running into entropy shortages on the hosts, or just hitting CPU load issues. Some ptest improvements have also been made.
  • Despite this progress, we continue to see intermittent issues, particularly ptest ones. Help is very much welcome on these issues. 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 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 and current test cases are very slow to work with.
