Current Dev Position: YP 2.3 M1

Next Deadline: YP 2.3 M1 by Dec. 12, 2016

SWAT team rotation: Juro -> Anibal


Key Status/Updates:

*        We are switching these reports to Monday instead of Friday, at least for the next month or so for various reasons.

*        2.1.2 was released last week.

*        We're now part way through M1 and are making good progress in a number of key areas.

*        Mark Hatle has shared an interesting setup tool for managing/adding/removing layers. It requires use of a layer index to guide it but it may be a way forward for distros wanting to guide their users in setting up build environments. A number of projects are evaluating its usage. There is discussion about this on the architecture mailing list.

*        The changes to the default expansion parameter of getVar/getVarFlag have merged. We are now in the process of removing the obsolete "True" parameters to clean up the codebase.

*        Work on recipe specific sysroots now has a proof of concept and there will be discussion about this on the architecture mailing list.

*        Rather than make uninative the default for OE-Core, we've agreed to enable the native compiler options globally which should allow eSDK to work with OE-Core.
