Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.2 has been released
  • Master has now opened up for 3.3 development. Unfortunately there have been a lot of issues showing up with some of the more adventurous patches being proposed, the issues are being worked through.
  • Intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur. 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
  • 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):

  • YP 3.3 dates for builds, milestones and release have been added below.
  • Anuj Mittal has kindly agreed to maintain the YP 3.2 series (gatesgarth), thanks!
  • The SWAT team has been re-established. A new mailing has been created as swat@... to support this and a number of member organisations have agreed to help staff this team. We are in the process of getting the process running again and in due course there will be the option of other community members being able to help too. The tools and processes are under review to allow us to optimise the process. Thanks to the members and everyone participating to make this happen!
