Key Status/Updates:

  • The final 3.4 build is now due.
  • We should be in a reasonable position and ready for the 3.4 build, except for the SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH corruption issues we’re seeing. Once those issues and the related sstate reuse issues are fixed, we’ll build 3.4. At this point there are other patches but they’re causing failures and clearly aren’t ready for merging.
  • There continues to be an sstate reuse issue where native sstate on aarch64 and x86_64 hosts isn’t generating correct hashes when combined with hash equivalence.
  • Intermittent issues took a significant rise last week as SWAT caught up with the backlog of issues. Help is very much welcome on these issues. 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
