Glibc maintainers sought for m68k, hppa
In the upstream glibc repository, both M68K and HPPA ports have been
moved into the separate "ports" repository. This means two things:
- The core glibc maintainers will not update them when sweeping
changes are made. This was already the case; they're just making
- ACLs can be set up to allow a port maintainer to directly modify
I'm already covering two other ports, so I refuse to pick up two more
"orphans". If you want continuing glibc support for these
architectures, I think we need to find developers interested in
maintaining them in the upstream trees. I can point interested folks
at some of the recent changes which need to be synched to their ports,
but I'm not going to continue keeping a list much longer.
M68k in particular needs some loving. New versions of glibc will not
build without TLS support; whether or not you go to full NPTL support
(which I highly recommend), you need to implement TLS. It's not too
hard, really. And it's long overdue.
