Subject: Re: Vision for new platform

I am also working on something similar but less ambitious - I want to 
reuse what's out there but based on code quality. I plan on using llvm, 
musl, compiler-rt, libc++, mclinker, toybox and a few required gnu 
projects. My main idea is to use mruby and rspec for integration 
testing (to mitigate breakage and ensure deployability) and for package 
building / testing where building is for many package manager formats 
(such as output for rpm, deb, etc) and where testing covers mainly code 
quality based on analysis. There's also a whole whack of other ideas I 
have such as using LSH for hashing source (to find similar bad sections 
of code as well as categorizing packages), using git, svn, etc to keep 
with upstream, allow hackability and maybe even bisection across an 
entire dependency graph.
