Date: Thu, 7 Apr 2011 15:19:14 -0400 From: Rich Felker <dalias@...ifal.cx> To: musl@...ts.openwall.com Subject: musl news & milestone Greetings! I'm pleased to announce that, as of version 0.7.7, a third-party developer (chris2 on #musl) has successfully scripted the build for a musl+busybox based Linux system. The system uses a musl-linked gcc and binutils toolchain and is capable of rebuilding itself from source and building the kernel. So far there is very little documentation, but you can find the scripts at: https://github.com/chneukirchen/sabotage The work chris2 has done setting this up has turned up a number of bugs in musl which have been fixed in the last two releases, for which I'm very grateful. I hope also to bring on the project a student, sponsored by Google Summer of Code through the OpenWall project, to develop and run intensive tests on many of the standard library's interfaces. This will help find remaining problems in musl, or establish confidence in the correctness of interfaces which appear correct. I also intend to apply the tests to other implementations, especially glibc, and suspect we may turn up a number of bugs or quality-of-implementation issues, some of which may be security-relevant. -- Rich
