Status FreeBSD libc5?
I was just wondering what the status of the debian-bsd stuff in general.
I have looked back a few months in the mailing list archives and I didn't
really get a feel for what the current direction is. I noticed some
postings earlier this month about NetBSD and glibc. They also referenced
FreeBSD and glibc. I however could not actually look at the web paged
linked to (I assume because of the compromised servers?). I looked at the
project page on Sourceforge but there wasn't much info there. (I'm not
being critical here, just an observation, heaven knows I have plenty of
projects on Sourceforge that I never have time to update. ;-)
I also looked at the /ports/netbsd and /ports/freebsd pages on the debian
web site. I am particularly interested in FreeBSD as I have run my
internet radio station on it for a year and it runs very well. However,
it is a remote machine and trying to keep up with patches is kind of a
bummer. I tried tracking -stable but it is still work to make world and
all of that. So I have just switched to Debian (Linux) to see if that is
as stable, easier to maintain, and keep up with security. But I would
really like to use FreeBSD and I think perhaps the Debian-FreeBSD might be
So I guess my question is, is the Debian-FreeBSD-libc5 port stalled? Is
there anything I could to do help? I have a lot of programming
experience, but I don't know how much I know about this particular area.
