Current Dev Position: YP 3.5 M1

Next Deadline: 6th Dec. 2021 YP 3.5 M1 build


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.3.4 has been through QA and is waiting on release approval after discussion of bug 14622, likely will be released.
  • YP 3.1.12 was built but had autobuilder failures so is also being discussed.
  • A request was made to continue hardknott support in the community and this was agreed until Feb/March next year but will not overlap the LTS.
  • Patches to guard against poor performance if servers are unresponsive have been merged along with mirror urls for key components. These should make the system more robust and allow builds to work with infrastructure outages. Fixes are in master and dunfell with hardknott and honister due to have the backports as well.
  • Packagegroups which are also allarch will now raise errors if they depend on anything using the PKG: package renaming mechanism (e.g. debian.bbclass renaming).
  • We continue to see a reduction in the number of patches in “Pending” state. Many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to review patch status and handle accordingly, particularly where they were accepted upstream.
  • Intermittent issues continue to rise and help is very much welcome on these 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
