Yocto Project Weekly Status Jan. 19, 2021

Current Dev Position: YP 3.3 M2 development
Next Deadline: 18th January 2021 YP 3.3 M2 build

Next Team Meetings:

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.3 M2 is due to be built once the currently queued patches are stalised.
  • YP 3.1.5 has been built and is through QA and likely to be released imminently after TSC review.
  • We’re pleased to announce that Bootlin are going to be helping with the build and integration work for the project, we’d like to welcome them on board and also thank the projects member companies for making this possible.
  • Builds are continuing to show some intermittent instability. Unfortunately we also suffered NAS issues and whilst there has been no data loss, recovery of the system is slowing the autobuilder temporarily.
  • Intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur and with more invasive changes and higher rebuild rates, the numbers are increasing again. 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

Yocto Project Weekly Status Jan. 12, 2021

Current Dev Position: YP 3.3 M2 development
Next Deadline: 18th January 2021 YP 3.3 M2 build

Next Team Meetings:

Key Status/Updates:

  • Patches for 3.3 M2 development are being tested and merged. We have one week left before M2 is due to be built.
  • It was a mixed week for builds and patches, several reproducibility issues appeared and issues also appeared after patches had merged in the second or third build after that due to state reuse and differences between worker distros. This makes merging the patches challenging.
  • In particular, an upgrade to qemu 5.2.0 did merge. That upgrade includes a change to the underlying build system and the patchset was significantly rationalised which may cause issues. In particular, issues on centos hosts were eventually traced to the mmap_min_addr setting being too low (65536 now seems to be the useful minimum).
  • We are now tracking intermittent ptest failures and a number of bugs have been opened for these, we don’t as yet have people able to work on them though.
  • CVE metrics are starting to trend down again but we still have 56 “open” CVEs against master and more in gatesgath/dunfell so help in further reducing the number would be appreciated.
  • Intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur and with more invasive changes and higher rebuild rates, the numbers are increasing again. 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

Yocto Project Weekly Status Jan. 5, 2021

Current Dev Position: YP 3.3 M2 development
Next Deadline: 18th January 2021 YP 3.3 M2 build

Next Team Meetings:

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.2.1 and YP 3.3 M1 were released
  • Patches for 3.3 M2 development are being tested and merged. We have two weeks before M2 is due to be built.
  • Many version upgrades have been merged and the project has worked closely with the upcoming autoconf and ppp releases to reduce our patch deficit and ensure we’re ready for them.
  • We have seen a number of reproducibility failures from the increased test coverage on the autobuilder, several of the issues have had fixes.
  • We are now tracking intermittent ptest failures and a number of bugs have been opened for these, we don’t as yet have people able to work on them though.
  • CVE metrics have trended slowly downwards, thanks to everyone sending patches and quietly improving things either through patches or better CVE definitions upstream.
  • Intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur. 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
  • The LTS release has changed documentation format from docbook over to sphinx to match master as it should be more maintainable and consistent with the project over the planned life of the LTS.
  • For the LTS, there is also discussion on whether the wider reproducibility testing should be enabled as recently done in master due to the number of potential issues which may need to be fixed (master isn’t 100% working yet) as well as whether the pseudo path filtering should be backported. Please do give input to discussions on these topics on the mailing lists.
