Yocto Project Weekly Status September 12th, 2023

Current Dev Position: YP 4.3 M4 (Feature Freeze)
Next Deadline: 2nd October 2023 YP 4.3 M4 build date

Next Team Meetings:

Key Status/Updates:

  • We are now at feature freeze for 4.3 and 4.3 M3 is in QA
  • The numpy reproducibility issue is not solved unfortunately
  • There are continuing intermittent ptest issues for openssh and glib-networking amongst other issues
  • The testing for qemuppc and qemumips/qemumips64 has been reduced and we’re no longer testing core-image-sato-sdk on these platforms.
  • SPDX manifests are now enabled by default for OE-Core/nodistro as well as poky.
  • Patches have been resubmitted to radically alter the do_unpack process for license compliance reasons. The code is complex and hard to understand and will have a performance impact on builds as well as making things hard to debug. *The risk of not taking the changes is that for some legal departments, the SPDX data isn’t detailed enough. The compromise between performance and ease of use vs. legal requirements is a tough one. We don’t really want to have two codepaths either. Feedback/review on the series welcome.
  • We’re happy to be able to announce that some of the work in the RFQ will now be progressing, specifically that:
    • Marta Rybczynska will be working on the security topic
    • Alexander Kanvin will be working on the core workflow topic
    • Savoir-faire Linux will be working on the toaster and VSCode topics
    • BayLibre will be working on the patchtest and project tooling topics
    • Michael Opdenacker (Bootlin) will be working on the binary distro topic
    • Smile will be working on the meta-openembedded topic area

We’d also note that Tim Orling (Konsulko) will be working on the layer index.
