Yocto Project Status WW04`21

Stephen Jolley

Current Dev Position: YP 3.3 M3 development

Next Deadline: 1st March 2021 YP 3.3 M3 build 


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.3 M2 is currently in QA and we are now in the final development milestone M3 for 3.3
  • YP 3.1.5 was released.
  • We have a new simple system to help with the SWAT process, “SwatBot”, . This aims to simplify the SWAT process by listing the exact list of issues which need to be triaged and tracks the resolutions. It will mainly be of use to anyone participating in the SWAT process but mentioned here as people may see mention of it.
  • Intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur and with more invasive changes and higher rebuild rates, the numbers are increasing again. You can see the list of failures we’re continuing to see by searching for the “AB-INT” tag in bugzilla:
  • An interesting idea came up in discussion with Kernel CI about potentially sharing YP autobuilder results into their system. There is an open bug for anyone interested in helping with or tracking this: It could also be an interesting use case for generating an SBOM with our output artefacts.
