Key Status/Updates:

*	YP 2.7 M2 rc2 is in QA and 94% complete.  See:
*	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 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
*	RDEPENDS handling in native recipes had a significant change, fixing
some long standing bugs but also needing some circular dependencies to be
fixed. The change may impact other layers.
*	Circular dependency debugging from bitbake was fixed and should no
longer hang, another long standing issue which when fixed, allowed the
native RDEPENDS to be debugged and fixed.
*	The default compiler path mappings were enhanced and should now also
cover macro files.
*	There is major work/review going on for "resulttool" with a view to
using this for QAing M3.
*	A new round of AUH (Automatic upgrade Helper) patches has been sent,
thanks to everyone who's processed and responded to those! It was able to
upgrade around half the recipes needing upgrading.
