Current Dev Position: YP 2.5 M3 development

Next Deadline: YP 2.5 M3 cut off was 2/19/18

SWAT team rotation: Juro -> Paul on Feb. 2, 2018.

SWAT team rotation: Paul -> Tracy on Feb. 9, 2018.


Key Status/Updates:

·         YP 2.5 M2 has been built and is pending QA. The M2 milestone contains the linux-yocto kernel backports and gcc upgrade for the spectre and meltdown security issues.

·         YP 2.2.3 is mostly through QA, some issues have been identified with newer host distro releases; however, these are likely something we’d address with 2.2.4.

·         autobuilder.yoctoproject.org continues to be unavailable as we continue to develop the new autobuilder codebase to replace the current heavily customized buildbot one.

·         There are some changes to runqueue in bitbake about to land (currently in -next) which bring some risk of dependency problems in recrdeptask and recideptask handling, it's worth keeping in mind if task dependencies issues appear shortly after those merge.

Planned upcoming dot releases:

YP 2.4.2 (Rocko) will be built shortly, once there is QA bandwidth available.

YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built when a stable version of the spectre/meltdown patches are ready.

YP 2.2.3 (Morty) rc2 is in QA, see https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.2_QA_Status.  This will not contain the spectre/meltdown patches as they’re not ready yet.

Key YP 2.5 Dates are:

YP 2.5 M2 cut off is past, it is in QA.

YP 2.5 M2 release of 1/26/18

YP 2.5 M3 cut off of 2/19/18
