Yocto Project Status WW20'21

Current Dev Position: YP 3.2 M1

Next Deadline: YP 3.2 M1 build date 2020/6/16


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.0.3 is in QA result review, there were ptest regressions but these look intermittent in nature and hence unlikely to block release
  • YP 2.7.4 should be built this week
  • One of the autobuilder issues where workers were hanging was tracked down to a NFS incompatibility between the NAS and new kernel versions. The NAS was upgraded to resolve this at a cost of some short notice downtime.
  • There remain a large number of bugs that we’d ideally like to fix in 3.2 M1 (or M2) but they are “unassigned”, there is nobody to work on them. If anyone has time, looking at these bugs would be a great way to help us. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Bug_Triage#Medium.2B_3.2_Unassigned_Enhancements.2FBugs
  • There continue to be other intermittent autobuilder issues in both master and dunfell which we’re trying to track down. These ones look related to the code rather than infrastructure.
  • The AUH is now implemented as an autobuilder job and will be run from there in future.
