Yocto Project Weekly Status March, 19, 2019

Current Dev Position: YP 2.7 M3
Next Deadline: YP 2.7 M3 Cutoff was Feb. 25, 2019

SWAT Team Rotation:

Key Status/Updates:

  • M3 has not built yet however most major pieces are in place, including now, agreement on the new QA process. The delay is partly due to RP travel with others able to cover being unavailable for other reasons, combined with infrastructure issues.
  • The remaining questions for M3 are:
    • Public documentation of the new QA process
    • Upgrade for uninative for glibc 2.29
    • Mesa upgrade? (unlikely given failures in testing)
  • The Yocto Project has updated to its new governance model which includes establishing a Technical Steering Committee (TSC) for Yocto Project. This is designed to complement and work alongside the OpenEmbedded TSC. Three members of the YP TSC are selected by the Yocto Project governing board and those people are Ross Burton, Khem Raj and Richard Purdie. The remaining two seats will be elected by OpenEmbedded. It is intended the TSC will take over the release process, SWAT team, bug triage and feature planning/development for 2.8.
  • YP 2.5.3 continues to be blocked on autobuilder-helper changes for the stable branches and the resulttool changes in master to move to the new QA process.
  • There is discussion on the openembedded-architecture list about changes to the stable branch patch criteria to bring us more into line with current industry best practices and thinking.

Planned Releases for YP 2.7:

  • YP 2.7 M3 Cutoff was Feb. 25, 2019
  • YP 2.7 M3 Release Target was Mar. 8, 2019
  • YP 2.7 M4 Cutoff is Apr. 1, 2019
  • YP 2.7 M4 Release Target is Apr. 26, 2019

Planned upcoming dot releases:

  • YP 2.5.3 (Sumo) will be targeted after YP 2.7 M3 is done.
  • YP 2.5.4 (Sumo) will be targeted after YP 2.7 M4 is done.
  • YP 2.6.2 (Thud) will be targeted after YP 2.5.4 is done.

Yocto Project Weekly Status March, 12, 2019

Current Dev Position: YP 2.7 M3
Next Deadline: YP 2.7 M3 Cutoff was Feb. 25, 2019

SWAT Team Rotation:

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.7 M2 rc2 was released on May 5, 2019.
  • We believe we now have all the key components for 2.7M3 in master-next but have not completed a successful test run with this. In addition to the list last week, this means M3 will include:
    • 5.0 kernel
    • qemuarm transition to armv7
    • Busybox full replacement utils
  • Some invalid source revisions tested in master-next have broken the autobuilder causing build hangs and failures. With travel and other distractions, nobody is available to dive in and debug this immediately so it will block M3.
  • We also want to complete the transition to the new QA process and test this for M3. Aproov is going to send out details of this imminently, we believe the main code work is complete and its process/documentation that remains. We will block on this as we want to use the new QA process for M3 and the final 2.7 release.
  • YP 2.5.3 continues to be blocked on autobuilder-helper changes for the stable branches and the resulttool changes in master to move to the new QA process.

Planned Releases for YP 2.7:

  • YP 2.7 M3 Cutoff is Feb. 25, 2019
  • YP 2.7 M3 Release Target is Mar. 8, 2019
  • YP 2.7 M4 Cutoff is Apr. 1, 2019
  • YP 2.7 M4 Release Target is Apr. 26, 2019

Planned upcoming dot releases:

  • YP 2.5.3 (Sumo) will be targeted after YP 2.7 M2 is done.
  • YP 2.5.4 (Sumo) will be targeted after YP 2.7 M4 is done.
  • YP 2.6.2 (Thud) will be targeted after YP 2.5.4 is done.

SWAT Team Rotation:

Key Status/Updates:

http://lists.openembedded.org/pipermail/openembedded-architecture/2019-February/001591.html

  • There were some serious usability issues found with multiconfig, those have been fixed in master and thud.
  • Various recipe upgrades made it in, thanks to all who contributed. Several recipes also converted to meson including glib-2.0 and gdk-pixbuf.
  • We now need to build M3 as we’re past feature freeze point for 2.7. Right now we’re aware of the following things which ideally need to be resolved first:
    • Bug 13178 “X server and matchbox desktop don't start up properly on beaglebone” needs to be fixed
    • Find the framebuffer problem with qemuarmv7 and switch to that
    • Several ptest issues would be addressed (missing openssl tests, 3 timeouts)
    • Arm build host issues identified and resolved
  • It’s unlikely we’ll switch to virtgl by default for 2.7 due to lack of testing from the community although the base patches for this have merged.

Planned Releases for YP 2.7:

  • YP 2.7 M2 rc2 is out of QA.
  • YP 2.7 M2 Release Target was Feb. 1, 2019

Current Dev Position: YP 2.7 M3
Next Deadline: YP 2.7 M3 Cutoff is Feb. 25, 2019

SWAT Team Rotation:

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.: https://autobuilder.yocto.io/pub/non-release/20190212-7/testresults/buildperf-ubuntu1604/perf-ubuntu1604_master_20190212045844_be52da1.html (from https://autobuilder.yoctoproject.org/typhoon/#/builders/92/builds/101) (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/ 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 lists: https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/freedesktop/2019-February/000396.html
  • If anyone has feedback about the maintainers/recipe upgrade processes or how to attract new recipe maintainers, please talk to Richard Purdie / Ross Burton

  • 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.

SWAT Team Rotation:

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: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.7_QA_Status
  • 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 issues.
  • 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

Current Dev Position: YP 2.7 M3
Next Deadline: YP 2.7 M3 Cutoff is Feb. 25, 2019

SWAT Team Rotation:

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.6.1 should release this week. The transition to automated QA is raising some questions about test results but we’re working through those.
  • YP 2.7 M2 was built and is in QA and is 8% done. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.7_QA_Status
  • There have been a further round of gitsm fixes (and new test case additions). If anyone is seeing gitsm fetcher issues please report them. There are requests to backport these changes to the stable series. This has risks but people are reporting bugs there so is something we need to consider.
  • There has been little follow up from the last round of AUH patches. Please can maintainers work on this and get these submitted!
  • There has been little feedback on the proposed virtgl changes, these will likely merge as no discussion will be taken to mean there are no objections. This will have a performance impact.
  • There have been changes to the way the arm tunes are handled which merged after much discussion. The solution that merged should be safe and uncontroversial but if these do cause problems for anyone, please report ASAP.
  • We’re getting much improved results from our automated testing but these are highlighting a number of problems. There is an email about issues found in ptest. The biggest challenge here now is finding people able to step up and help improve things.

  • SWAT lead is currently: Chen

SWAT team rotation: Chen -> Armin on Jan. 25, 2019

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.6.1 is out of QA and the QA results are being reviewed. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/WW02_-_2019-01-09_-_Full_Test_Cycle_2.6.1_RC1
  • We have preliminary patches for the qemuarm migration to an armv7 machine. These haven’t passed testing and will need some improvements, particularly in the area of graphics support so will be deferred to M3 but it is great to see progress being made.
  • The qemu virtgl patchset is also making great progress in review/development but will also be deferred to M3.
  • We are now running the build performance tests as part of our standard autobuilder which is a further step towards streamlining our testing and release process. We are having some problems with the graphs that are generated in the emails. If anyone has experience or interest in helping with this (google charts in emails) we’d love to hear from you!
  • The perl changes which landed last week seem to have mostly been ok, there have been some race issues and we’re grateful to Alex and the perl-cross upstream for their fast turnaround on those.
  • Further fixes for the gitsm fetcher landed but there are still reports of issues. We continue to try and find ways to expand our test case matrix so we can fix the issues *and* ensure we don’t regress.
  • The latest round of updates from the AUH were sent out. Some have responded to this and sent in upgrades, many have not. If you are listed as a maintainer, please help us keep recipes up to date!

  • The hash equivalency server code merged, thanks to Joshua Watt for his patience in working through some of the details with that!
  • Many different patches for upgrades, features and fixes continue to be merged and we should be mostly up to date with incoming patches.
  • There do continue to be intermittent failures on the autobuilder, albeit at lower frequency than previously.
  • The cross-perl patchset from AlexK is building successfully on the autobuilder so others are requested to give feedback as its likely to merge soon based on the test results.

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.7 M1 is in QA and 100% complete. The final report should publish shortly. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.7_QA_Status
  • YP 2.5.2 rc1 in the process of being released. The announcement should come shortly.
  • We realised the toolchain bootstrap process could be simplified with the removal of glibc-initial and gcc-cross-initial. There have been separate emails about this and despite the vacation period, Khem and RP believed them to be ready and good enough to merge. Streamlining this bottleneck in the build has been something we’ve wanted to see for a number of years so its good to get this build time performance boost!
