Next Deadline: 21th Feb. 2022 YP 3.5 M3 build


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.5 M2 has been released.
  • YP 3.1.14 is undergoing QA aiming for release later this week
  • We plan to remove our centos8 autobuilder workers (using stream) since there are regressions being introduced to the distro which aren’t being actively fixed quickly enough for the needs of the autobuilder (e.g. the ability of normal users to use ping). We can’t really recommend this as a build distro for that reason. The alma8 workers are looking more stable and will remain.
  • We are seeing a potential hang issue with make 4.2.1 where kernel or perl builds hang (seen on stream and opensuse 15.3), help/insight in debugging that would be very welcome.
  • Prelink support was removed from master due to it’s planned removal from glibc 2.36.
  • The glibc 2.35 upgrade is blocked on resolving a couple of issues, one test failing using buildtools and another in multilib builds having overlapping files.
  • A new Patchwork is available at https://patchwork.yoctoproject.org/. This new system is running the up to date mainline code and will receive regular updates. The previous unmaintained fork remains up at https://patchwork.openembedded.org/ to preserve history. We are seeking help updating PatchTest to run with the new version.

Everyone can now sign up for an account on the new system. Patchwork project maintainers please email mhalstead@... to have your access restored.

In particular, we’re struggling to understand the intermittent network issue with external hosts we’re seeing very occasionally.
