Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.2 M1 was released.
  • We’ve updated to a new version of the buildtools tarball for master and dunfell
  • We continue to be concerned about autobuilder stability, we’re continuing to see high numbers of intermittent failures. You can see the list of failures we’re seeing by searching for the “AB-INT” tag in bugzilla: https://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=AB-INT

Help is urgently needed to bring these to a manageable level.

  • We are struggling with maintainers for some key components of the system/infrastructure such as devtool, wic, buildhistory and patchwork/patchtest. If anyone can help in these areas please contact Richard.
  • If anyone has thoughts on attracting and recognising project contributors and contributions, we would be interested in ideas and assistance in that area.
  • It is ELC this week, please stop by the booth and/or ELC #2-track-yocto-project slack channel and say hi. There are still places available on our virtual Developer Day: https://events.linuxfoundation.org/yocto-dev-day-north-america/
  • Another way to help the project is to help us with bugs that are currently unassigned but ideally needed during 3.2. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Bug_Triage#Medium.2B_3.2_Unassigned_Enhancements.2FBugs
  • We’re pleased to announce we have a new manual in the Yocto Project documentation ‘bookshelf’ which covers the project’s testing processes and infrastructure including the autobuilder and resulttool. A work-in-progress version of this can be viewed here: https://www.yoctoproject.org/docs/docs_temp/test-manual/test-manual.html. So far, it contains basic information in key areas, we’re happy to take feedback on areas that are missing or need more information and/or take contributions to further extend this work.
