Yocto Project Weekly Status May 21, 2018

Current Dev Position: YP 2.6 M1 is accepting patches.
Next Deadline: YP 2.6 M1 release is June 11, 2018

SWAT Team Rotation:

Key Status/Updates:

  • We thought 2.4.3 had built and gone into QA however it seems something wasn’t configured correctly and this didn’t happen. We’ll requeue it again today.
  • There was a second 2.6 planning technical call on 15th where some further topics for 2.6 were discussed and some people/companies showed interest in those areas.
  • The next discussion on 2.6 planning will happen on June 5, 2018 at 8am PDT.
  • There were blocking issues with the new buildbot/autobuilder codebase which were preventing feature parity between the old and new codebases but after discussion with upstream we now have a plan on how to move forward. This unblocks progress on the new infrastructure.

Planned upcoming dot releases:

  • YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built this week
  • YP 2.4.3 (Rocko) is planned for after 2.3.4
  • YP 2.2.4 (Morty) is planned for after 2.4.3

Yocto Project Weekly Status May 14, 2018

Current Dev Position: YP 2.6 M1 is accepting patches.
Next Deadline: YP 2.6 M1 release is TBD

SWAT Team Rotation:

Key Status/Updates:

  • Yocto Project 2.5 (sumo) released.
  • The technical call on 1st May started discussions on 2.6 planning. Some threads were started on the openembedded-architecture mailing list for some of the topics which need discussion. The email linked to below details the planning process we will be following along with some of the possible ideas for 2.6: http://lists.openembedded.org/pipermail/openembedded-core/2018-April/150040.html
  • A further 2.6 planning meeting will be scheduled at the same time as the original meeting on 15th May to continue the discussion (8am PST, 4pm GMT).
  • Patches are merging into master but as ever, there are challenges in identifying the root cause of regressions and ensuring the patches causing them don’t merge.
  • We are noticing some a minor issues with uninative, an issue with non-IA statically linked security flags and a few other misc issues.
  • The number of “unowned” bugs in bugzilla is substantially increasing
  • The number of attendees at the bug triage meeting is very low compared to normal
  • The number of committed features for 2.6 is currently significantly lower than previous releases

Planned upcoming dot releases:

  • YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built this week
  • YP 2.4.3 (Rocko) is planned for after 2.3.4
  • YP 2.2.4 (Morty) is planned for after 2.4.3

Key Status/Updates:

  • Several key uninative issues were identified and fixed which should mean uninative is much more reliable than previously as there were some rare but problematic corner cases which are now fixed.
  • Other potentially 2.5 blocking changes such as timezone issues were fixed.
  • We have documented sstate mirror setup for poky as opt-in, not by default and will monitor the usage of this to see how sustainable it is.
  • Assuming the current test build succeeds, 2.5 rc1 will be built today.
  • An email about 2.6 planning was sent out and people are invited to the next monthly technical call (https://www.yoctoproject.org/monthly-technical-call/). The email details the planning process we will be following along with some of the possible ideas for 2.6.

Key Status/Updates:

  • 2.5 M3 was released. There were some issues but we have decided to target these for the final release rather than respinning M3.
  • Our automated testing shows problems but only on machines in Asia. This was root caused to the timezone settings of the builds. We have therefore moved some of the reproducibility code to be the default (TZ setting) in order to have consistent builds.
  • Fedora28 has necessitated a late uninative upgrade which is due to merge for 2.5 but may have an issue still to resolve (rpm-native popt issue).
  • The final 2.5 build is blocked on the fedora28 issue above and the two remaining build issues we are seeing on debian9 machine the QA team has. Our main autobuilder debian9 builds are ok.
  • Master-next still has a number of recipe upgrades queued which are being rebased continually. We still want to discourage people from sending recipe upgrades until we start 2.6; however, there were simply too many patches to ignore. This has meant various people and build resources have ended up distracted from 2.5 work.
  • For 2.6 we are looking at a slightly different planning process. In the next monthly team call we will discuss the plans for 2.6. The agenda will be seeded with some high level ideas/goals about what we may be able to do in 2.6. It will then be up to the Yocto Project members and community to decide if they can contribute the time and resources to make them happen (or add to the list). If you are able to work on something in 2.6 please let us know or come to the meeting and discuss it with us so that we can ensure we have an accurate plan! A separate announcement email will be sent out about this in the next few days.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built after 2.5

SWAT team rotation: Tracy -> Stephano on April 20, 2018
https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Yocto_Build_Failure_Swat_Team

Key Status/Updates:

  • The M3 rc1 QA report has been completed: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/WW15_-_2018-04-09-_Full_Test_Cycle_-_2.5_M3_rc1 There are a number of selftest failures and a known SRCREV related issue with the build-appliance. We will look into these, but at this point we don’t foresee these blocking M3 and will aim to start testing release candidates for the final 2.5 release this week.
  • A problem was spotted with fedora28 which has worryingly decided to merge extra patches ahead of glibc and “break” ABI over the split of libcrypt out of glibc into libxcrypt. Since we will have to handle this, we have decided to change nativesdk-glibc for the 2.5 release but keep on target as is until the situation with upstream glibc becomes clearer.
  • We realised late in the cycle that we needed to change the LAYERSERIES_COMPAT variable in the core layers. We have also added warnings to make this variable more obvious and required it for Yocto Project Compatible v2 status. It seemed best to make these changes for 2.5 rather than wait until 2.6.
  • We are considering a final late change to 2.5 to allow poky to use the Yocto Project sstate mirrors by default. Feedback welcome on whether we should do this. It is late in the cycle but would make a good speedup for users potentially.
  • Armin fixed the SDK locale issues with morty, thanks! We are aware of a related locale build regression on morty sadly.
  • We were able to upgrade pseudo and have hopefully resolved our fedora27/coreutils issues. Thanks to all who helped!
  • Master-next has a number of recipe upgrades queued. We still want to discourage people from sending recipe upgrades until we start 2.6; however, there were simply too many patches to ignore. This has meant various people and build resources have ended up distracted from 2.5 work.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built after 2.5 M3
YP 2.2.4 (Morty) will be built after 2.5 M3 once the glibc 2.27 issue is fixed
YP 2.4.3 (Rocko) is planned for post YP 2.5.

Key YP 2.5 Dates are:
YP 2.5 M3 is in QA. See status above.
YP 2.5 M3 was scheduled for release 3/2/18

https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Yocto_Build_Failure_Swat_Team

Key Status/Updates:

  • Two issues have so far been identified in the M3 rc1 build. One is due to differences in build-appliance srcrev between the new and old buildbot autobuilder codebases. The second is an issue with the particular stable kernel version causing problems on 32bit IA which we believe is fixed in current master due to kernel version changes there.
  • We continue to be blocked with morty on the glibc 2.27 and the sdk locale issues. Armin has been looking into it.
  • The pseudo issue with newer versions of coreutils as used in fedora27 continues to cause problems, but thanks to some work by several people we do look close to a solution. The help from everyone is much appreciated.
  • We are now well into the stabilization period and are seeing a number of good patches both to fix current issues and future proof the release, foreseeing potential problems with versions and heading those issues off. Thanks to everyone helping with these.
  • The codename for 2.6 (after sumo) will be ‘thud’.
  • As a reminder, general recipe upgrades will not be merged during this period unless there is a pressing reason. Those will be held for 2.6.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built after 2.5 M3
YP 2.2.4 (Morty) will be built after 2.5 M3 once the glibc 2.27 issue is fixed

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.5 M3 rc1 was built and went into QA. This release was built on with the ‘new’ autobuilder codebase. Some issues were found with artefact publication but nothing to block the rc1 as yet.
  • We are still blocked with morty on the glibc 2.27 and the sdk locale issues
  • Code has been added to uninative to ensure the glibc corruption that occurred with the newer glibc cannot happen again.
  • We have found a new issue where fedora 27’s version of coreutils is using syscall() to call a syscall directly and hence corrupting permissions of some files from pseudo’s perspective. We’re currently discussing this with upstream as its looking problematic to fix and we’d much prefer they use the glibc wrappers.
  • We have a fix for the qemuarm64 hangs during early boot, thanks to everyone who’s helped fix that, its much appreciated and will help our automated tests.
  • A significant win in opkg compression speed was found (thanks Ross!)

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built after 2.5 M3

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.4.2 was released: https://lists.yoctoproject.org/pipermail/yocto/2018-March/040282.html
  • Meta-intel 8.1 was released: https://lists.yoctoproject.org/pipermail/meta-intel/2018-March/005261.html
  • We’ve realised we were going to run into problems with distros adopting glibc 2.27, if not now, during the next release cycle. We therefore decided to head off this problem and try and fix the issues now. Unfortunately, due to locale changes in 2.27, it also breaks our eSDK in the current and all previous releases. We have fixes in master for this (thanks Ross!) and backports ready for rocko and pyro in the -next branches. Morty is proving harder to fix. We believe it is likely better to fix these issue even if the changes are invasive (they are at least mostly contained to the SDKs).
  • The gcc 6.x changes were merged into rocko/pyro/morty which means point releases are now unblocked by that issue.
  • The performance issue reported last week was tracked down to a kernel change which was reverted.
  • The new buildbot autobuilder instance is working with basic functionality. We therefore plan to run the M3 release build on that infrastructure with a view to using it for the main 2.5 release. It was great to be able to report an issue upstream and be using their latest code! The autobuilder functionality is improved in at least two significant ways already which benefit the maintainers.
  • We really do need to roll M3 now, our current plan is to test the final changes in mut and then run M3 with this. It is not a perfect set of features, many things simply haven’t made it in as the people doing review are overloaded. We’re too far past the freeze deadline to realistically make any further progress with this though.
  • ELC was productive and there was a lot of good discussion between the people there about many different things. In particular we have some ideas for improving the project’s build infrastructure to allow more builds including other layers. More info will follow as we build the plans to make that happen.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built after 2.5 M3

Key Status/Updates:

  • The Embedded Linux Conference is in Portland this week!
  • YP 2.4.2 RC2 QA report is being discussed and is expected to be released this week. (https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/WW10_-_2018-03-05-_Full_Test_Cycle_-_2.4.2_rc2).
  • We are changing the planning process and Milestone tracking in Bugzilla. More details can be found here: https://lists.yoctoproject.org/pipermail/yocto/2018-March/040226.html
  • A new uninative release was made (1.8) because distributions are moving to glibc 2.27 and this broke the old uninative. People using uninative should upgrade to this.
  • GCC 6.x with the latest security fixes is currently in rocko/pyro/morty -next thanks to Martin and Juro. They are undergoing autobuilder testing now but we hope they’ll be merged soon.
  • Performance metrics indicate that a recent merge has caused a slowdown in build times. It is suspected that the glibc upgrade is the cause of this although help would be appreciated to verify and possibly mitigate this.
  • Flood of last-minute upgrades continuing to be reviewed and merged if high reward or low impact.
  • Go upgrade/improvements were merged. For 2.5 we will be shipping both 1.9.4 and 1.10, but plan to drop 1.9.x from master once 1.10 doesn’t present compatibility problems.
  • EFI image refactoring patches were merged. The gist of these are that /boot is now under package manager control instead of injected at image creation.
  • A number of patch refresh patches were merged. These are to solve problems with patches applied with “fuzz”, where patch will note that the context isn’t correct anymore but the differences are hopefully small enough to apply anyway. Sometimes this is useful (other changes causing the target lines to move), sometimes it’s actively harmful (patch applied incorrectly, silently breaking behaviour). We hope to warn when fuzz is detected during the 2.6 cycle so these patches are removing fuzz from oe-core. Expect a mail to the lists soon explaining how to find and remove fuzz.
  • We are continuing to work on the autobuilder changes and for various reasons (inc. changes in people). We would be in much better shape to switch to the new codebase before release, rather than waiting until early 2.6 to pick this work up again by which time we would have lost people and context. If we are to switch, we need to build M3 with the new infrastructure. We plan to make this switch for M3.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built when GCC backports are merged.
YP 2.2.4 (Morty) will be built when GCC backports are merged.
YP 2.4.3 (Roko) is planned for post YP 2.5.

This release added gobject-introspection tests to testimage, integrated support for the Meson build system, Python build/packaging refactoring, and redesigned postinstall script handling.
  • YP 2.2.3 was released February 27.
    • A total of 97 CVE fixes and other fixes to work with GCC 7 on newer host OSs.
    • We have committed to a 2.2.4 release to integrate all remaining security fixes.
  • YP 2.4.2 RC2 came out of QA today (report at https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/WW10_-_2018-03-05-_Full_Test_Cycle_-_2.4.2_rc2)
  • YP 2.5 M3 is in final feature freeze. Reviewing last week’s required features:
    • 2.27 glibc upgrade has been merged. This meant making SDK changes so they’re all ~50M larger now thanks to the need to ship locales. However the same underlying code could be reused to generate locale archives in images, which will make those smaller.
    • kernel-devsrc size reduction: the blocking issue has been resolved so waiting for an updated patch.
    • pseudo upgrade has been merged which should solve many issues, and Peter is investigating the long-standing host contamination issue.
    • Still need to resolve the multilib SDK patch series.
    • Package feed filtering has been merged.
    • Image EFI configuration rework under review now.
  • Performance metrics indicate that a recent merge has caused a slowdown in build times. It is suspected that the glibc upgrade is the cause of this although help would be appreciated to verify this.
  • Flood of last-minute upgrades continuing to be reviewed and merged if low-impact.
  • Go upgrade/improvements are under review, possibly we’ll ship both Go 1.9.4 and 1.10 in 2.5 but do plan to drop 1.9.4 from master as soon as 1.10 doesn’t present compatibility problems.
  • We’re continuing to work on the autobuilder changes and for various reasons (inc. changes in people). We would be in much better shape to switch to the new codebase before release, rather than waiting until early 2.6 to pick this work up again by which time we’d have lost people and context. If we are to switch, we need to build M3 with the new infrastructure. We plan to make this switch for M3.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built when we figure out gcc backports.
YP 2.2.4 (Morty) will be built when we figure out gcc backports.
YP 2.4.3 (Roko) is planned for post YP 2.5.

Key YP 2.5 Dates are:
YP 2.5 M3 is in feature freeze. See status above.
YP 2.5 M3 was scheduled for release 3/2/18
YP 2.5 M4 cut off of 4/2/18
YP 2.5 M4 release of 4/27/18

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.5 M2 is through QA and likely to be released early this week.
  • YP 2.2.3 is through QA and likely to be released early this week.
  • YP 2.4.2 rc2 was successfully built and is undergoing QA.
  • YP 2.5 M3 is feature freeze. After discussions with various people we concluded that we need:
    • the 2.27 glibc upgrade
    • kernel-devsrc size changes
    • to resolve some of the outstanding pseudo bugs
    • to resolve the multilib SDK patch series
    • the package feed filtering patch series (the multilib SDK series depends on it)
    • image EFI configuration rework
  • We plan to defer:
    • pkg-conf vs. pkgconfig issues/discussion
    • profile guided optimisation for python (patch series)
    • oe-selftest parallelization
  • We’re continuing to work on the autobuilder changes and for various reasons (inc. changes in people). We would be in much better shape to switch to the new codebase before release, rather than waiting until early 2.6 to pick this work up again by which time we’d have lost people and context. If we are to switch, we need to build M3 with the new infrastructure. We’ll have to make a decision on whether we do this during this week.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.4.2 (Rocko) is currently in QA 82% complete. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.4_QA_Status
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built when we figure out gcc backports.

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.5 M2 is 97% through QA. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.5_QA_Status
  • YP 2.2.3 is also mostly through QA. See https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.2_QA_Status
  • We build 2.4.2 rc1 however rapidly moving kernel updates combined with QA not having started on rc1 yet meant we decided to build rc2, pulling in further kernel security fixes (as well as others like openssl). rc2 is currently being built and should enter QA today assuming a successful build.
  • autobuilder.yoctoproject.org continues to be unavailable as we continue to develop the new autobuilder codebase to replace the current heavily customized buildbot one.
  • We managed to shrink the ltp package size which unblocked some patch merging. Bruce has been working on changes to kernel-devsrc to significantly reduce its size.
  • The glibc change continues to be blocked on locale issues which may prove tricky to resolve and will block M3 as we need the glibc upgrade for various reasons.
  • We have some key decisions to make about the conflicting native of pkg-conf and pkgconfig. Maxin has a patch series which exposes the issues.
  • There are problems with the changes to pseudo’s master branch verses the patches we have against the recipe.
  • Please note that we are very close to M3 which is feature freeze, technically, feature freeze was yesterday. We’re not in a position to build M3 yet but if there are features you expect to see in 2.5, please highlight those patches ASAP. We are drawing up a list of “must haves” for the release and if we don’t know about it, it likely won’t be on it.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.4.2 (Rocko) is currently being built and should enter QA today.

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.5 M2 is currently undergoing QA and nearly complete. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.5_QA_Status
  • YP 2.2.3 is also mostly through QA. See https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.2_QA_Status.
  • Holidays mean that QA is slowed, we will QA 2.4.2 as soon as they return.
  • autobuilder.yoctoproject.org continues to be unavailable as we continue to develop the new autobuilder codebase to replace the current heavily customized buildbot one.
  • Some positive performance news is that by removing the “fetchall” and “checkuriall” tasks, we were able to take “bitbake core-image-sato -g” from 20s to around 8s. The speedup comes from the runqueue calculation so most builds will benefit from this speedup. The tasks are replaced by a dedicated bitbake option, --runall=<taskname>.
  • Kernel updates have been blocked as some image sizes have overflowed the maximum allowed image sizes. We’re working on figuring out how to resolve that, likely by stripping ltp and/or optimising the kernel-devsrc recipe if possible.
  • The glibc change is blocked on various build failures the code seems to trigger as well as issues with gplv2 vs gplv3 patches for meta-gplv2.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.4.2 (Rocko) will be built shortly, once there is QA bandwidth available.
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built when we figure out gcc backports.
YP 2.2.3 (Morty) rc2 is in QA.

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.5 M2 has been built and is pending QA. The M2 milestone contains the linux-yocto kernel backports and gcc upgrade for the spectre and meltdown security issues.
  • YP 2.2.3 is mostly through QA, some issues have been identified with newer host distro releases; however, these are likely something we’d address with 2.2.4.
  • autobuilder.yoctoproject.org continues to be unavailable as we continue to develop the new autobuilder codebase to replace the current heavily customized buildbot one.
  • There are some changes to runqueue in bitbake about to land (currently in -next) which bring some risk of dependency problems in recrdeptask and recideptask handling, it's worth keeping in mind if task dependencies issues appear shortly after those merge.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.4.2 (Rocko) will be built shortly, once there is QA bandwidth available.
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built when a stable version of the spectre/meltdown patches are ready.
YP 2.2.3 (Morty) rc2 is in QA, see https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.2_QA_Status. This will not contain the spectre/meltdown patches as they’re not ready yet.

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.5 M1 rc3 was released.
  • Fixes for spectre and meltdown are in master and also in the rocko branches for both gcc (updated to 7.3) and linux-yocto.
  • We will likely consolidate a few further patches (such as genericx86 and other meta-yotcto-bsp updates) and then build and QA both 2.5 M2 and 2.4.2.
  • Work on the autobuilder changes continues but means autobuilder.yoctoproject.org is not being used in production (autobuilder.yocto.io aka ‘the new cluster’) is.
  • There were a number of lock related issues with the yocto.io builder over the weekend which are being investigated.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.4.2 (Rocko) will be built shortly.
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built when a stable version of the spectre/meltdown patches are ready.

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.5 M1 rc3 is out of QA and should be released imminently. There were some minor issues but we’ll address these as part of M2.
  • With a round of security released fixes likely to land shortly, we’ll likely wait for these before we roll M2.
  • The Automatic Upgrade Helper (AUH) ran, now based on devtool functionality and testing against a wider set of architectures and build options. This looks likely to easy recipe maintenance and increase productivity for people and I’d like to thank Alex for his work on this. There is much it could do better but it is continuing to evolve and become easier to use which is great to see.
  • The AUH emails have triggered a good batch of recipe upgrades. QEMU was also upgraded (which can often cause problems).
  • I sent out a separate summary of changes which are happening to the Autobuilder, people on the SWAT team need to be especially aware of this http://lists.openembedded.org/pipermail/openembedded-architecture/2018-January/000694.html
  • The long queued python recipe changes including its manifest have landed. We tested this as far as we could in core and I know there is some fall out in other layers, help and patience to work through the issues is appreciated. Patches pending against the python recipes will need to be rebased and resent.
  • There have been some significant changes to cmake, ninja and meson and meson is now the default for some recipes. There were some significant gettext cleanups.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.4.2 (Rocko) will be built when a stable version of the spectre/meltdown patches are ready.
YP 2.3.4 (Pyro) will be built when a stable version of the spectre/meltdown patches are ready.
YP 2.2.3 (Morty) rc1 is in QA, see https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.2_QA_Status. This will not contain the spectre/meltdown patches as they’re not ready yet.

Key Status/Updates:

  • 2.3.3 and 2.4.1 were released. These releases do not contain spectre/meltdown patches/fixes as those are still being worked on and haven’t merged yet.
  • We are mostly up to date with patch queues although there are some bigger series which are still being tested/reviewed and are still pending
  • Due to testing problems with 2.5 M1 rc3, it is still undergoing QA testing and is 90% complete. We are continuing to have some QA transition/infrastructure issues. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.5_QA_Status.
  • A separate update on the spectre/meltdown status and the project has been sent out to the oe-core mailing list.

https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Yocto_Build_Failure_Swat_Team

Key Status/Updates:

  • 2.3.3 and 2.4.1 are likely due to imminently release, we tracked down the performance regressions to some kind of infrastructure issue which is still being investigated.
  • The automated testing issues have mostly been resolved now and this has meant we’ve run a series of builds for master and the stable release branches. As such, the backlog of patches against morty, pyro, rocko and master are substantially reduced after this weekend.
  • Armin’s help with the stable patch queues is much appreciated.
  • Due to testing problems with 2.5 M1 rc1, particular from the qemu APIC hangs, we have put a new build, rc3 into QA. The QA of YP 2.5 M1 rc3 is about 2% complete. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.5_QA_Status
  • We’re aware there are some serious security issues around at the moment. We’ve been stalled partly as maintainers are returning from vacation, partly as fixes are only now becoming available. As fixes are available we will waterfall these into the branches. One of the reasons we’ve focused on clearing the other patches queued is so we can quickly test and merge these and then proceed with another set of point releases.

Planned upcoming dot releases:
YP 2.4.1 (Rocko) rc1 is out of QA, and should be released this week.
YP 2.3.3 (Pyro) rc1 is out of QA, and should be released this week.

Key Status/Updates:

  • Things have been slow over the holiday season but things should be back to normal by the end of this week.
  • The QA of YP 2.4.1 rc1 is complete. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/WW51_-_2017-12-21-_Full_Test_Cycle_-_2.4.1_rc1.
  • The QA of YP 2.3.3 rc1 is complete. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/WW51_-_2017-12-20-_Full_Test_Cycle_-_2.3.3_rc1.
  • For 2.3.3 and 2.4.1 we have some questions about performance issues which the QA process potentially identified and we need to investigate these before any release can be made.
  • The QA of YP 2.5 M1 rc1 is about 68% complete. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.5_QA_Status
  • The QA of YP 2.2.3 rc1 is about 24% complete. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/2.2_QA_Status.
  • The kvm apic hang is resolved for qemux86-64 with a workaround. The workaround doesn’t work for qemux86 but there is another patch pending to address this.
  • We keep seeing phantom “inode space” issues with the NFS setup on the autobuilder across all releases. I think we’re likely to give in and change the disk space monitoring on the infrastructure to ignore this as its breaking too many builds and likely not worth tracking down further.
  • There are other suspected repository concurrency issues on the infrastructure causing failures and we’ve disabled buildhistory to allow builds to work until that is resolved.
