Re: Porting the Hurd to L4 (glibc dependencies, dropping glibc?)

if you would let us participate to your concepts of current and future
development, such discussions would be more effective. We can't guess
what you're planning to do on short or middle term if you don't post
your ideas somewhere :(.

BTW, porting glibc to *BSD is not on my priorities list either, as this is
not what I'm currently looking for nor interested in. There is enough
trouble hacking up L4 servers already, without having to port glibc. I'm
not having the glibc expertise to do so anyway.

Look, I didn't want to attack you or whoever wrote up glibc, so there's no
need to reply like this. Basically, you suggest nothing less than to shut
up and do our own non-approved stuff without asking for feedback from the
list. This is asking for a split in development :-((( Sad perspectives...,
but splits are necessary sometimes.

Okay, this discussion is obviously getting us nowhere. If anyone is intersted
to help me with what I suggested, please contact me on PM. We could try
to do "less talking and more hacking" in this direction.

Murphy's Law fails only when you try to demonstrate it, and thus succeeds.
