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 is due to be released with one known issue

  • YP 3.1.18 is entering QA

  • There were further issues with debug file mapping discovered in master. Unfortunately to fix this we’d need to move away from the relative path calls to configure in autotools and this causes a ton of new buildpath warnings. There doesn’t seem much interest in fixing these kinds of issues and to move things forward help would be needed here.

  • There is a patch to rework the rust toolchain support into something which has tests and working cross build support. Whilst this actually builds and tests on the autobuilder properly (an improvement on the existing code), help would be needed in chasing down the remaining failures/warnings and any regressions from the patch.

  • We are managing to stay roughly on track with upstream updates and CVE fixing.

  • 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
