Key Status/Updates:
YP 4.0 was released, thanks to everyone who contributed to it!
YP 3.3.6 was released
YP 3.1.16 is due for release and has TSC approval
YP 3.4.4 is due to build this week
Master has started taking new patches but we have struggled with issues on a number of autobuilder workers and the cluster was down on capacity as a result.
If people see intermittent issues in their own builds, particularly if they’re the same as intermittent issues seen on the autobuilder, please do comment in the bugs mentioning when they happen as the frequency information does help us prioritize fixing the most common issues.
Intermittent issues continue to be at high levels and help is very much welcome in trying to resolve them. 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

Ways to contribute:
There are bugs identified as possible for newcomers to the project: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Newcomers
There are bugs that are currently unassigned for YP 3.5. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Bug_Triage#Medium.2B_3.5_Unassigned_Enhancements.2FBugs
We’d welcome new maintainers for recipes in OE-Core. Please see the list at: http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit.cgi/poky/tree/meta/conf/distro/include/maintainers.inc and discuss with the existing maintainer, or ask on the OE-Core mailing list. We will likely move a chunk of these to “Unassigned” soon to help facilitate this.
