Yocto Project Status WW23`22

Stephen Jolley

Current Dev Position: YP 4.1 M2

Next Deadline: 11th July 2022 YP 4.1 M2 Build


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 4.1 M1 was built and been through QA with one kernel issue raised. We will likely release and fix this for M2, pending TSC approval.
  • YP 3.1.17 rc1 was built but failed on the autobuilder, partly due to infrastructure issues but also failing ptests in openssl, likely due to expired certificates. As of writing,  rc2 is building after infrastructure fixes but the ptest fixes were insufficient. If there are no other issues we will aim to release rc2 and fix the openssl ptest regressions for 3.1.18 pending TSC approval.
  • Patches have continued to merge into master but have been slowed down by various intermittent issues showing up on the autobuilder:
    • We have bumped the minimum make version for the project and added a make-native dependency for perl to avoid bugs in old make 4.1 versions (particularly on ubuntu 18.04).
    • There are some fixes for potential deadlock issues in the bitbake UI on the bitbake list for review
    • We also have some tweaks to the wget fetcher to allow infrastructure mirror races to be avoided.
  • 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
