Yocto Project Status WW04`22

Current Dev Position: YP 3.5 M3

Next Deadline: 21th Feb. 2022 YP 3.5 M3 build


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.5 M2 finally built today after a number of autobuilder build issues and is now in QA
  • Building M2 was fairly painful as various sstate error/warning code paths were exposed in release builds, there were some infrastructure issues, some test reporting bugs and other bugs like that in systemtap on arm and a reproducibility issue, all of which combined to break the release builds in different ways. Hopefully most of these are now addressed or in the process of being fixed/tested.
  • Upstream glibc are planning to remove prelink support in 2.35 with patches proposed on their mailing list. The project is unlikely to be able to continue to maintain any prelink support once this happens and we will therefore remove our prelink support before the next LTS unless the situation changes and maintainers step forward.
  • An email proposing inclusive language changes for bitbake and OE-Core has been sent to the community for review. The aim is to implement this before M3.
  • The debian9 autobuilder issues were hardware related and fixes for the arm systemtap issues are being tested but autobuilder intermittent issues are still at an all time high.
  • CVE metrics improved for master but work still remains on the various stable branches which have high counts.
  • Intermittent issues continue to be at record high levels and help is very much welcome in trying to resolve them. 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
