Subject: Draft: musl promo materials

Hi all,
Here's a quick draft (and request for input/suggestions) of
points/highlights about musl to eventually be incorporated into the
website and other opportunities to promote musl. With
embedded-relevant ports getting integrated now, I'm thinking this sort
of thing will also be useful for sending announcements to relevant
mailing lists, etc. Anything big I'm missing?



Consistent quality and implementation behavior from tiny embedded
systems to full servers.

Minimal machine-specific code, meaning less chance of breakage on
minority architectures and better success with "write once run
everywhere" development.

Realtime-quality robustness. No unnecessary dynamic allocation. No
unrecoverable late failures. No lazy binding or lazy allocation.

MIT license.

Full math library with a focus on correctness. Exact and
correctly-rounded conversion between binary floating point and decimal

Reentrancy, thread-safety, and async-signal safety well beyond the
requirements of POSIX. Even snprintf and dprintf are fully reentrant
and async-signal-safe.

Highly resource-efficient POSIX threads implementation, making
multi-threaded application design viable even for memory-constrained
