Yocto Project Weekly Status January 24th, 2023

Current Dev Position: YP 4.2 M2
Next Deadline: 23rd January 2023 YP 4.2 M2 Build

Next Team Meetings:

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 4.1.2 is due to be released and YP 3.1.22 is in QA
  • We had a few annoying intermittent autobuilder bug fixes this week, thanks to anyone who helped fix those!
  • Failures on the autobuilder slowed down patch testing and merging as builds took a long time to stabilize. Thankfully we believe the most frequently occurring issues have been fixed so things should speed up again a little this week.
  • CVE levels in master are becoming worrying again, help would be appreciated to address the open issues.
  • We have a growing number of bugs in bugzilla, any help with them is appreciated.

Ways to contribute:

  • YP 4.1.2 and YP 3.1.22 were released
  • YP 4.2 M2 is due to build this week.
  • Stable builds have been proving hard to obtain due to varying issues over many of the submitted patches. This has limited patch flow over the last week.
  • We were able to merge 6.1 kernel improvements and a number of good bug fixes in other areas too.
  • There has been an improvement to the configurability of patch warnings/errors and patch fuzz issues will now error and stop builds by default.
  • Warning/errors over missing Upstream-Status details in non-core layers appears too controversial to enable by default but the option is now available should users wish to.
  • CVE levels in master are becoming worrying again, Ross helpfully summarized the situation and submitted CPE changes for some of the issues being highlighted, thanks!
  • We have a growing number of bugs in bugzilla, any help with them is appreciated.

Current Dev Position: YP 4.2 M2
Next Deadline: 23rd January 2023 YP 4.2 M2 Build

Next Team Meetings:

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 4.1.2 is in QA
  • A large number of package upgrades have merged bringing us up to date with various upstreams.
  • We have started moving code out of core bbclass files into the function libraries to help reduce parsing memory use, volumes of data transfer and sstate signature data sizes. Help is welcome in developing further patches to improve our function libraries.
  • The autobuilder controller has been relocated to deal with connectivity issues, we do have some issues to iron out before things are back to normal service. We were unable to upgrade the buildbot version as there were too many other moving pieces.
  • We are trying to upgrade uninative to include libgcc to deal with pthread_cancel failures. Newer versions of patchelf are proving problematic and appear to be causing segfaults and we’re trying to untangle this from other issues.
  • We have reverted the tune for qemux86-64 back to corei7-64 since we still have v2 hardware that won’t work properly with v3 under KVM and similar.
  • A uninative bug has been exposed by recent bitbake datastore improvements which could cause sstate to be missed/duplicated.
  • We merged a number of neat rust improvements which add on target cargo support and added automated QA tests for this functionality so we can ensure it continues to work and doesn’t regress. Thanks Alex Kiernan, we hope to see more series like this one!
  • CVE levels in master are becoming worrying again, help would be appreciated to address the open issues.
  • The autobuilder maintenance window now occurs on Mondays.
  • We have a growing number of bugs in bugzilla, any help with them is appreciated.

Yocto Project Weekly Status January 3rd, 2023

Current Dev Position: YP 4.2 M2
Next Deadline: 23rd January 2023 YP 4.2 M2 Build

Next Team Meetings:

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 4.2 M1 and YP 4.0.6 were released.
  • Builds on the autobuilder are problematic at present due to connection losses with the controller machine. We understand the cause and will be migrating the controller to a new server/location in the next maintenance window to address this.
  • A number of invasive bitbake changes have merged including a change to add threading to bitbake’s server/cooker. This will allow us to attempt to resolve various UI/server hang related open bugs and to improve the user experience, e.g. Ctrl+C handling. If people do see issues with hangs, please report them and include the tail end of the bitbake-cookerdaemon.log file.
  • The bitbake cache changes to optionally include more hash debugging information did merge. This currently triggers only for the bitbake -S operations but once that mode is triggered for memory resident bitbake, it is “sticky” and will remain set until it unloads. We have seen some OOM issues on autobuilder workers which may be related to this, more debugging is needed to check on bitbake’s memory usage.
  • Automatic bitbake function library dependency code has also merged and is active. This should let us migrate class code to become library code for performance improvements.
  • A bug in the layer.conf variable changes was identified which was causing re-parsing when it wasn’t necessary. A fix has been merged to address that.
  • The OE TSC decided in favour of adding export flag expansion despite the performance impact so that patch will be queued.
  • We merged a number of neat rust improvements which add on target cargo support and added automated QA tests for this functionality so we can ensure it continues to work and doesn’t regress. Thanks Alex Kiernan, we hope to see more series like this one!
  • CVE levels in master have improved but still need a little work
  • The autobuilder maintenance window is moving from Friday to Monday.
  • We have a growing number of bugs in bugzilla, any help with them is appreciated.
