Next Team Meetings:
YP 4.1 M2 has a build in progress and then will go into QA
Last week there seemed to be a large number of autobuilder issues including many non-deterministic dependencies for qemu, as well as a lot of intermittent buildpaths issues. These have now mostly been resolved.
The help received in resolving buildpaths issues was appreciated, particularly with the kernel where we seemed to uncover several unexpectedly.
We have enabled buildpaths in WARN_QA by default. This takes our reproducibility to a new level but there is some fallout in layers which will need to be fixed.
meta-gplv2 builds have been dropped from master and the layer will no longer be maintained.
We’ve noticed that debug information is still not being processed by package.bbclass entirely correctly and it is missing a large chunk of the kernel sources for example. RP is trying to debug this.
There are continued reports of issues with the rust SDK compiler. Sadly we just have patches to make x86_64 work rather than getting to the root of the issues and cross compile it correctly, which is a concern.
Work is continuing on the /proc/pressure monitoring code. Initial averaging wasn’t working so well but we have an improved approach which seems to regulate builds better.
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
