Yocto Project Status WW42`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 released
  • YP 3.1.17 rc2 is due to be released (fixed for the openssl ptest issue are queued)
  • We’re taking normal development work, recipe upgrades, bug fixes and so on, nothing too major to report.
  • Patch metrics are in a reasonable position thanks to continued and sustained work over time to try and control the level and status of patches in OE-Core.
  • WDD is also lower than it has been for a while, thanks to bugzilla cleanup and issues being addressed by a number of people.
  • At the risk of sounding like a stuck record, we continue to see intermittent autobuilder failures which result in a need to retry builds. This is a significant concern and uses up a lot of time/resources to try and investigate and fix.
  • 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
