Key Status/Updates:

*	YP 3.1 M2 is due to be built next week.
*	Patch merging is roughly on track however there are a number of
failures identified with key patches (glibc has a prelink issue on mips,
python 3.8 upgrade blocked on uid issue, gstreamer meson transition blocked
on nodistro failure). Most of these issues are making progress over time.
*	The more worrying aspect is that there are a number of
recurring/intermittent failures in the automated testing, mostly from
selftest and testimage.
*	Looking at the build history, "full" images have built cleanly only
once in the past month (3 times in the last two months), which is a pretty
shocking statistic which summarises the challenges we face there. Most of
these are being procrastinated on by the bug owners since we can't reproduce
them at will. We really need help working on these kinds of issues.
*	We have changed the sstate mirrors to be per release, simply to
lower the numbers of files in any given sstate directory.
*	The triage team is worried about attendance at triage meetings and
the project is finding it hard to find people to help fix bugs. If anyone is
willing to work on bugs, assistance would be greatly appreciated.
