Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.4 M3 is built and now in QA. This means we are now feature complete for 3.4 and will be working on stabilization.
  • YP 3.3.3 has been built and is waiting in the queue for QA after 3.4 M3. This includes the override syntax compatibility changes.
  • SBOM generation work was merged in and will be in the release as preliminary work on this topic, there will likely be some further tweaks during M4.
  • Further rust issues were resolved such as the centos7 build issues.
  • A work around for the glibc 2.34 clone3 syscalls in uninative was added and a new uninative built/released.
  • A fix for some of the multiconfig issues where deadlocked tasks and tasks were showing errors being on both the “covered and not covered lists” is available in master-next for review, hopefully addressing the issues that were being reported. This was possible from a better test case that was submitted enabling debugging.
  • Intermittent issues are ongoing and 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
