Key Status/Updates:

·         YP 2.5 M2 is currently undergoing QA and nearly complete. See:

·         YP 2.2.3 is also mostly through QA. See  T

·         Holidays mean that QA is slowed, we will QA 2.4.2 as soon as they 

· 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 

·         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.
