Current Dev Position: YP 3.3 M1 development

Next Deadline: 7th December 2020 YP 3.3 M1 build


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.1.4 will build later this week.
  • YP 3.3 development in master is continuing as patches are reviewed, tested and merged.
  • We plan to backport the sphinx documentation transition back to our LTS after 3.1.4 is built.
  • A small but important issue was identified related to build reproducibility where the host umask was influencing the build output in relatively minor ways. We plan to run a mixture of umasks on the autobuilder infrastructure in future to avoid this source of reproducibility issues. There are patches for the issues queued for master and will be backported in due course.
  • Support for fedora33 has been resolved but required making pseudo-native host specific and not ‘uninative’ due to differences in the way pseudo builds depending on the presence of headers.
  • Hashserve “passthrough” support has merged allowing hashservers to be chained together, thanks Joshua.
  • 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
  • Further autobuilder improvements have been submitted and accepted into upstream buildbot (field history, triggered build summary stats and work name display in build summary). As these are released and deployed, they will make small but important improvements to the autobuilder usability.
