== notes ==
- 3.4 M1 (honister) to be built next week
- 3.1.8 (dunfell) passed QA, waiting final approval for release
- CVE issue count: master=6, hardknott=14
- AUH to run more regularly
- multiconfig issues still not ironed out
- ptest based on core-image-minimal instead of core-image-sato
- record high levels of AB intermittent issues

== general ==
RP: AB int issues seemed to be helped by limited the number of threads used
for compression

RP: two cases of trying to talk to upstream but found problems with our
logging, upstream says “go away and fix your logging” before we can
continue discussions

PeterK: question about yocto-poky tags
RP: we stopped adding “hardknott-pokyversion” (e.g. “hardknott-25.0”)
tags and this broke PeterK’s workflow. i would prefer to move away from
these tags and use yocto tags instead
PeterK: i’m okay moving to something new. “hardknott-3.3.1” would be
better than “hardknott-25.0”. also, could we wait and not change this
in the middle of a release series? (i.e. wait for the first release of
RP: i need to talk to MichaelH and Vineela and figure something out
RP: this is part of a larger task to rationalize the release process a bit
better (e.g. also need to tie in the documentation releases too with Nico)
RP: this tells us that people are using some of these things that we didn’t
think were being used
MichaelH: Vineela and I have a couple other release things we need to go
over, i’ll make a meeting. we could add tags going backwards so we
can transition now. this would give us some correlation to the tags in
openembedded etc

TimO: freenode?
RP: we didn’t do anything last week (due to Summit). i think Nico needs to
coordinate with MichaelH. i believe we are moving over to libera.chat
Scott: fd.o seems to have moved to OFTC
TrevorW: do we have ops in #yocto and #oe?
RP: yes
TimO + PhilipB: we’ve got slack too
JPEW: matrix integration too?
TimO: yes Jan-Simon

RP: please discuss on licensing email list
RP: i think there’s a plugfest going on and i don’t think anyone from YP
has signed up
Randy: Mark from WR is attending
RP: i’d like to fly the YP flag there
JPEW: details?
RP: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdVOewc3uCZh39inX4X7QsA_jaQMqyrEiLFrWEZEpWxRCi3eQ/viewform
Philip: who’s interested in showing up at the plugfest?
JPEW: i would, but 22nd doesn’t work for me
Philip: i could go
??: what’s the layer?
Saul: meta-doubleopen
Ross: 22 doesn’t work for me either, but i could help put stuff together

TrevorW: videos for YPS are up

Jan-Simon: what’s the procedure for updating layerindex?
RP: PaulE is an admin
Ross: I was added recently
RP: MichaelH who are the admins?
MichaelH: myself, PaulE, Ross, JaMa, Nico, Randy
TimO: PaulE recently added me too
J-S: there are a lot of issues with the layerindex (e.g. emails bouncing)

Randy: should we move the next monthly meeting to avoid the 4th of July?
RP: sounds good, we’ll move it to July 13th
