Yocto Project Status WW42`21


Richard Purdie
 

Current Dev Position: YP 3.4 M4
Next Deadline: 29th Oct. 2021 YP 3.4 M4 release

Next Team Meetings:

Key Status/Updates:
  • YP 3.4 rc1 is through QA and the TSC is discussing, likely planning to release as 3.4
  • Patches to master have continued to merge post-release, most of the backlog is now processed. There were a number of more invasive changes that were deferred for after 3.4 and this has disrupted things a little (pkgconfig-native missing dependencies, reproducible builds being made the default, openssl 3.X, python 3.10, insane class function cleanup and switch to zstd for sstate which have also now merged.
  • We are pleased to report that sstate reuse on the autobuilder has improved significantly and this is reducing build times, to the point several of us did check to see if it did actually build things!
  • Intermittent issues continue to rise, particularly with some seemingly network related gremlin somewhere. 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
