Using the Yocto Project master branch for a CI/CD (DevOps) approach has it’s challenges.  I will discuss moving from a stable release and uplift strategy to a continuous integration, continuous development and continuous delivery model using Yocto Project, OpenEmbedded and related community layers.  I will include information on my experiences and the challenges as both a contributor and consumer of the components, tracking contributions, integration of new content, testing challenges and release readiness practices.
