Key Status/Updates:

*	YP 2.6.1 was released on Feb. 4, 2019.
*	YP 2.7 M2 was built and is in QA and is 79% done.  See:
*	Some major recipe upgrades merged (glibc, binutils, llvm)
*	Some "prework" patches for various series merged (util-linux,
virtgl) but the main series are still pending development or review
*	Various ptest-runner and ptest runtime testing integration fixes
merged but many problems with the tests remain no volunteers to help resolve
*	We're seeing test failures which highlight major problems with the
archiver class, in particular the src.rpm component of it. I've proposed we
remove it, if you do care about it please step up and help fix it else it
will be removed. The src.rpm support is limited anyhow and likely to mislead
user expectations so removing it may be a good thing.
*	The recipe reporting system integration with the layer index is now
complete and available at:
https://layers.openembedded.org/rrs/recipes/OE-Core/2.7/M3/. Historical data
has not yet been imported to it.
*	The project autobuilder is running at slightly reduced capacity (but
not functionality) due to hardware failures.
*	The project is considering moving its mailing list hosting to
groups.io, if anyone has any experience of that, positive or negative please
let Michael, Nico and Richard know
*	We're becoming seriously concerned about the lack of response to the
last round of AUH patches
