Current Dev Position: YP 3.4 M2

Next Deadline: 12th July 2021 YP 3.4 M2 build

 

Next Team Meetings:

 

Key Status/Updates:

  • We plan to build M2 this week once we have pzstd included in the buildtools tarball
  • Once M2 is built, 3.3.2 will follow into QA.
  • There are proposals to add lz4c, zstd and pzstd as required host commands which we hope will allow better data archiving for license information and possibly for bitbake hash debugging too.
  • There are proposals and discussions on the architecture list around improving the syntax for overrides in the metadata. This would be a major change of a type we haven’t make in a while. The proposal includes the option of allowing the syntax in older bitbake versions to make metadata compatibility easier. Please comment on those discussions on the list if you have opinions on this.
  • The prserv rewrite is still pending on resolving the issues with python asyncio.
  • Intermittent issues are ongoing, 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.
