Yocto Project Status WW20`22

Stephen Jolley

Current Dev Position: YP 4.1 M1

Next Deadline: 30th May 2022 YP 4.1 M1 Build


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.4.4 released
  • YP 4.0.1 was built and is in QA
  • We’re coming up to 4.1 M1 at the end of the month which is a good point to aim for early testing of changes in the next release.
  • There are some prototype scripts updating patchwork patch status for OpenEmbedded-Core and BitBake which is covering about 75% of the patches to the merged state along with revision information: https://patchwork.yoctoproject.org/project/oe-core/list/

We’re hoping to extend this to other status information such as in master-next for testing but it is a work in progress. Let us know if you find this useful. With some manual work to clear the backlog of patches we could aim to keep it more up to date (there is an archive status we could use for that too).

  • We have added a new “metrics” target on the autobuilder. This currently has some simple patch status tracking information and can generate a history graph but the hope is to extend this to CVE metrics and likely other things. If anyone has interest in helping here, please let Richard know.
  • Help is very much welcome in trying to resolve our autobuilder intermittent 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
