Key Status/Updates:

*	YP M2 rc1 had major problems in perl as fallout from the perl
upgrade and switch to perl-cross. We've therefore built an rc2 based on a
more recent master.
*	The python upgrade to 3.7 merged, thanks to AlexK for his hard work
on this. It means all of the major components in OE-Core are finally up to
date (many minor versions are still adrift).
*	Major util-linux changes have just merged which should hopefully
allow easier long term maintenance of this recipe (all binaries now have
their own package, this recipe kept being split up)
*	Build performance tests on the autobuilder have been improved and
builds now have automated result comparisons, e.g.:
f-ubuntu1604/perf-ubuntu1604_master_20190212045844_be52da1.html (from
(Thanks to Markus for a lot of the underlying code/work)
*	Build performance can now compare master to master-next test builds
*	We continue to need help with ptest, both on the tests themselves
and on the results reporting. The intent is to have something similar to the
build performance pieces above.
*	The recipe reporting system integration with the layer index is
available at:  <https://layers.openembedded.org/rrs/recipes/OE-Core/2.7/M3/>
https://layers.openembedded.org/rrs/recipes/OE-Core/2.7/M3/ and the
historical data has now been imported.
*	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. Note that google has made further
significant changes to its mail processing at the detriment to mailing
*	If anyone has feedback about the maintainers/recipe upgrade
processes or how to attract new recipe maintainers, please talk to Richard
Purdie / Ross Burton
