Current Dev Position: YP 4.1 M3

Next Deadline: 22nd August 2022 YP 4.1 M3 Build

Next Team Meetings:

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 4.1 M2 was released

  • YP 3.1.18 passed QA and is due to be released

  • The debug file mapping issues have moved slightly further forward thanks to some help from Ross but are stalling due to insufficient developer time available to resolve the issues.

  • Some rust toolchain improvements did merge, including an automated rust toolchain test. The bulk of the rework is stalled on a handful of remaining issues, particularly a couple of reproducibility problems but also a mips n32 toolchain issue. 

  • We have one open CVE on master against qemu, help to backport that fix would be very welcome to keep the numbers down. CVEs in kirkstone (LTS) significantly reduced.

  • Some development workflow changes around the eSDK workflow merged. There are also some layer workflow patches still pending review.

  • 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
