Key Status/Updates:
  • YP 3.1.18 was released
  • YP 4.0.3 is due to build this week but we need the glibc and kernel reproducibility fixes first
  • Major changes to the rust toolchain build process were merged and this enables target rust, cross SDK and automated SDK testing. Sadly some issues remain and are stopping enabling the tests by default.
  • We have finally tracked down and worked out a fix for the kernel reproducibility issue which appeared in recent 5.15 stable updates. It was a config option which changed depending on whether /bin/sh was dash or bash.
  • The 5.19 kernel uprev is nearly ready to merge as the final build issues look to have been addressed.
  • The base glibc 2.36 patches have merged but not the actual upgrade yet.
  • We had some infrastructure issues over the weekend which impacted the autobuilder. Combined with a number of complex patch submissions, this has meant there are patches backlogged.
  • A number of new CVEs appeared in master this week so help would be much appreciated in addressing those.
  • The debug file mapping issues are stalled due to developer bandwidth limitations.
  • 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
