Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.5 M1 is in QA
  • YP 3.1.13 is due to build this week
  • We have maintenance to the autobuilder planned to fit SSDs to speed up IO and update the host distros to more modern equivalents. If parts arrive as planned, this is scheduled for next week (20th-24th) and the autobuilder will be unavailable during the work. There may be bring up issues with the new distros.
  • There were significant improvements in patch metrics this week with large drops in both patches in the pending state and overlap number of patches. Thanks to everyone who contributed to that!
  • As part of patch cleanup, some changes were made which could impact other layers or our spectrum of support. The libtool prefix patches were dropped as the need was largely obsolete by recipe specific sysroots, hosttools and other developments and this may mean patches in other layers can be dropped too. Some non-upstream invasive mips and sh4 patches were dropped as they were either obsolete or there were less invasive ways to handle them. 
  • CVE metrics improved this week with drops in open CVEs for both dunfull and master.
  • Intermittent issues continue to rise 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
