Patches on IRC rather suck for discussion: -no permanent record of suggestions (you have to be there/have a bot logging the channel...which is not possible with an ephemeral connection like I have.) -no public record -render inline comments impractical That said, IRC is great when you're asking about _revising_ a patch. > I'd like to have an issue tracker too.

And yes, you're right on the last count. The most feature-rich browser I've gotten working on musl is dillo, but I prefer to just start links. I'm a lot more likely to report issues while I'm running muslin than under Ubuntu. ;) Isaac Dunham
