Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.2 rc1 is currently building on the autobuilder.
  • Unfortunately, intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur, we had a record 8 of them in one full build over the weekend. We’re now holding out hope that better debugging data (such as qemu monitor information) when issues occur will help identify several of the issues. You can see the list of failures we’re continuing to see by searching for the “AB-INT” tag in bugzilla:

Help with any of these would be much appreciated, unfortunately it is proving hard to find anyone interested in helping figure these out and they significantly hamper our testing.

  • We have a steadily riding WDD and Medium+ bug count which is a concern.
  • We realized there was an issue with wiki account creation. These should be created now but please report if there are any issues.
  • A YP 3.3 planning document has been created for ideas about what may happen in the YP 3.3 release (assuming there are people to work on the items): Request suggest or edit access if you want to add to it.

  • The above document has the proposed dates for YP 3.3 milestones and release.
