Potential Yocto Project 1.1 Features

Yocto Project 1.1 - Target release = October 2011

Yocto Project 1.1 Themes

The topics below are the themes that some members of the team have started brainstorming for Yocto Project 2011.10. These will grow and change with community input.

Yocto Project 1.1 Objectives

The objectives of the Yocto 1.1 release are to grow participation in Yocto and increase the number of BSPs written for Yocto and partner products based on Yocto.

Yocto Project 1.1 Theme List

The Yocto Project 1.1 Themes towards the Objectives listed above are:

  • Multilibs & OE-core config - This work, which began in Yocto Project 1.0, needs to be completed.
  • Improve ease of BSP creation - Document the lifecycle and process. Possibly create walkthroughs or tutorials to integrate a new board into the linux-yocto kernel.
  • Enable users to easily and seamlessly build Yocto images - This refers to the effort to complete and integrate the Image Creator work started in 1.0.
  • Build performance – Get to the goal of 1 hour build time on a developer machine.
  • Upstreaming – Submit patches to upstream projects in order to reduce the large number of patches which are currently part of Yocto Project.

Process for Entering New Feature Requests

  • Create a new entry in the appropriate feature table below (Poky, SDK, Hardware)
    • Suggestion: start by copying an existing request as a template
  • Give the feature a short, descriptive name
  • Provide a one or two sentence brief description of the feature
  • Set the priority as appropriate (see the legend below)
  • Set the Status to "Review"
  • In the Source field, enter your name along with the origination of the request (e.g. OSV, OEM, Community) if applicable; provide as much detail here as you can
  • In the Comments / Bugzilla field, provide any additional information for the request, such as a link to a bugzilla entry
  • Preview your Entry to make sure it looks ok and then save it

pam patch integration add PAM patches throughout the system switchable via the PAM feature (Mark H) 2 Review Meta-data WR Distro Team ? Here is the information from Mark H: The concept is simply to check Fedora and look for Pam patches, integrating them as appropriate into OE-core.

(why fedora? In my experience Fedora has a better/more consistent set of Pam patches then other distributions I've looked at before.) We also need to do some source code investigation and look for uses of the password and group files within the system to see if there is anything else that should be using Pam. Finally as part of the integration are the individual Pam configuration files. They should only be installed onto the filesystem if Pam support is enabled.

selinux patch integration add SE Linux patches in a similar way to PAM 3 Review Meta-data Not scheduled at this time

Support ECG (ongoing) ECG is ramping up with Yocto BSPs and likely will require significant amounts of time and help. Also, since we\'re trading their BSP work for our help in upstreaming patches, we\'re also likely to have to spend a significant amount of time with upstream-related tasks too. 1 Review Tom Tom Tom will create an on-going task list

Systemtap integration Make it easy and convenient for the user to write and execute Systemtap scripts from the IDE. http://www.eclipse.org/linuxtools/projectPages/systemtap/ might provide a good starting point and may be something we can contribute to. We may also need to contribute further up the chain to provide e.g. remote target capabilities. 2 Review Tom Jessica \"Status check in M2, Sprint A,


M3, Sprint A\"

\'perf scripting\' integration Make it easy and convenient for the user to write and execute \'perf scripts\' from the IDE. We should be able to leverage and build on the Systemtap integration for this. 2 Review Tom Jessica \"Status check in M2, Sprint A,


M3, Sprint A\"

Enhance the deploy part in remote debug ADT is currently using org.eclipse.cdt.remote.launch for remote debug. One limitation in this plug-in is that it can only deploy one single file to the target during the debug. Though it is ok for debugging static linked program, debugging dynamic linked program might require deploying multiple files(including executables and libraries) to the target. 2 Review Lianhao Jessica M2 Sprint D

Documentation

Feature Name Description Priority Status Source Owner Comments / Bugzilla Links
Package Documentation Audit Make changes defined in the package documentation audit from Yocto 1.0 2 Review from 1.0 Scott G M1, Julie ask Scott re: Sprint
Yocto Project Development Guide This manual would be an over-arching document that frames the complete development cycle within Yocto Project. The idea here is that the document would be an umbrella document that spawned and referenced subsequent documents. The organization would be the first chapter overviews the major development pieces such as recipe creation, building, debugging, publishing, fail-safing, back-door hook creation, etc. This manual will also include migration information. Scoping would be about two weeks and length would probably be about 40 pages. Overall development time will likely take up to the release given my experience on the creation of the ADT manual (there is no uniterruped time). 1 Not Started from scratch ScottR on-going; Julie/Scott will work off-line on a more detailed schedule
Various Demo Videos The idea here is to create screen-capture type tutorials similar to what exists for the ADT Eclipse Plug-in. However, we want to contract out some help for professional voice-over talent to be used with the images. These don\'t have to be limited to screen-capture material but could include well-done PPT decks - similar to how other business units in Intel create various training modules. For 1.1 it would be good to capture the script for the existing ADT Eclipse Plug-in module and have it voiced over. Also, for 1.1 it would be good to create a similar module for the Image Creator application. 2 Not Started From ADT module and scratch ScottR EO M2 complete - Scott/Julie work off-line on additional milestones
Open-source Newbie Information This information will be for developers new to open-source. These people do not know what IRC means. Targeted for developers coming from a non-open-source environment. I think the best place for this information would be the website. I haven\'t looked yet but I suspect information already exists on the web. For Yocto it will be a matter of collecting the best and most useful information, orginizing it and properly referencing/leveraging it. 2 Not Started From scratch ScottR M4, ScottR/Darren will discuss how this ties into the Janitor work. Needs more definition.
Tarball Doc process Right now tarball docs are frozen shortly before a release. The tarball never gets updated beyond that during subsequent documentation development. However, website docs are periodically updated as changes are made during the next development cycle. We need a documentation process where the tarball docs are updated along with the website docs. Perhaps releasing and building a separate documentation tarball is an answer... This whole scheme needs thought about and something implemented. 3 Not Started From scratch ScottR M3, ScottR will work with Richard on this
OOB documentation Create an out of box guide for giveaway systems built using Yocto. 1 Review Julie ScottR Julie to research timing on this.
Tracing/profiling HOWTOs Create a document or extend the current Yocto tracing wiki page to explain in detail how to use all the tracing tools in Yocto. It should detail not only how to use each tool individually, but also how to use them in conjunction with each other, highlighting situations in which each is most useful. There should also be some extensive worked examples of real-life use-cases and how they could be investigated using the Yocto tracing/profiling tools. 2 Accept Tom Tom M2

Build

This section contains requirements related to the build (autobuilder activities, performance, footprint, etc.)

Feature Name Description Priority Status Source Owner Comments / Bugzilla Links
OE Autobuilder rename 1 Accept Beth Beth M1, Design
Strip out LSB, non-LSB build work Remove the LSB, non-LSB build work done at the end of 1.0 and re-incorporate it with sstate 1 Accept Beth Beth M1, Design
Additions to build stats 1 Accept Beth Beth M3, Sprint A
Autobuilder maintenance Bring scripts into configuration or get git repo working for those that can\'t be brought in. (takes 2 days) 1 Accept Beth Beth M1, Sprint A
Retrospective Hold a retrospective to discuss what went well and what can be improved in 1.1 1 Accept Beth Beth M1, Sprint A
Meta targets Part of the challenge of autobuilder is that you have to go into autobuilder, edit script, reconfigure, to change just one build target. This is error prone. What we need is a meta-target where Beth can say she wants to build Poky-image-sato for QEMU x86 and have it just do that. Beth thinks this is done via an override to the web page. (takes ~2 weeks) 1 Accept Beth Beth M2, Sprint B
License tracking Get common licenses for all packages and consolidate base file licenses. (takes ~3 days) 1 Accept Beth Beth M1, Sprint C
License tracking Build a parser to do license tracking more gracefully and make sure all recipes are correct. (takes ~2 weeks) 1 Accept Beth Beth M1, Sprint D
Audotbuilder infrastructure Bring up additional autobuilders and work with sysadmin to configure. 1 Accept Beth Beth M1, Sprint C (dependent on us having a system admin)
Overall Project Host a retrospective to discuss what went well and what can be improved in Yocto 1.0. (questions on this?) 1 Accept Beth Beth M1, Sprint A
Release Scripts Create Release Scripts that can be used for both a weekly release and for OCT 2011 release to be run by autobuilder (a week. testing on this may take longer) 1 Accept Beth Beth M1, Sprint B

Share gcc work directories 2 Review Team WR Distro Team ? Owner = TBD - WR distro team might be willing to own if they know what is required
Patch Test System Create a machine where developers can upload/test patches before submitting them to master to ensure builds won\'t break when patches are added. (developer autobuilders? Fuzz builds?) 2 Review Team Jiajun ?
build statistics reporting As someone interested in how long it takes to build different images on different hardware configurations and other assorted build metrics, I would like a web based service, that takes output generated by an extended buildstats.bbclass and stores it, to compare against different machines. The end result should be a way to visualize the collected data. See: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Yocto_Buildbot_Autobuilder_Discussions Accept eflanagan/Jay7/ka6sox Beth/Jay M1, Sprint B and C (or two weeks in here)
BSP builds Autobuilder git fetcher improvements (3 days) 2 Accept from 1.0 Beth M2, Sprint D
Implement Continuous Autobuilds Build constantly instead of daily (need fuzz builds for this. once fuzz builds are implemented, this is trivial) 2 Accept from 1.0 Beth M2, Sprint C
non-GPLv3 to Autobuilder non-GPLv3 build added to autobuilder 1 Accept Beth Beth M3, ww30 (Stabilization)

Kernel

This section contains items specific to the Yocto kernel.

Feature Name Description Priority Status Source Owner Comments / Bugzilla Links
BSP kernel config audit Audit kernel configs for the various BSPS. Should not be limited to just kernel config options -- it should also include discussion of overall strategies for defining and managing base branches, feature topic branches, config features, etc, and should result in not only the current kernels being changed to match, but also BKMs being published somewhere, probably in the kernel manual. 1 Accept Team Bruce Owner = Bruce, M1, 4th Sprint
Kernel Tools Figure out plan for kernel tools (are they merged into main repo or their own project?) 1 Accept Bruce/Mark Bruce Owner = Bruce, M1, 3rd Sprint
Kernel Tools Implement plan for kernel tools 1 Accept Bruce/Mark Bruce Owner = Bruce, M1, 4th Sprint

use cases BSP config streamlining, building the kernel standalone, yoctoization, meta data sharing 1 Accept Bruce Bruce Owner = Bruce, M3, 1st Sprint
Ongoing kernel maintenance There should be a task spread out over the whole release, say 10% of one person\'s time (just a guess), for monitoring LKML and Linus\' master branch, and/or relevant lists for patches relevant to the BSPs we maintain. We also need to figure out if Bruce needs help with the management of the base branches e.g. re-enabling features after kernel uprevs, moving feature tags forward, etc. 1 Review Tom Bruce Owner = Bruce, M2 4th Sprint
kernel port to 2.6.37 Port the kernel to 2.6.37 1 Accept Darren Darren M1, Sprint C
Tracing: perf trace scripting support Basically this means allowing perf to be built with the Perl and Python bindings, which turned out to be a headache last time. 2 Review from 1.0 Tom M1, Sprint D
Tracing: Add Systemtap support for userspace tracing Add utrace, etc 2 Review Tom Tom M1, Sprint C
Tracing: Systemtap usability in Yocto Right now, there are instructions on the wiki on how to configure and use Systemtap with Yocto. While straightforward, they are tedious and unlikely to be useful to most people pressed for time. We need to make it easier to use - in addition to documentation/HOWTO tasks listed elsewhere on this page, we need to make it usable \'out of the box\' (i.e. outside of ADT) e.g. all paths and configuration handled via script or something similar 2 Review Tom Tom M2, Sprint D
Tracing: tuna, oscilloscope recipes catch up with Tom, likely to remove 3 Review from 1.0 not scheduled at this time
