Subject: Revised 1.0 wishlist

The following wishlist is a draft. I may have missed some items, and
the compatibility goals and testing goals are new ideas subject to


Features wanted:
- Zoneinfo support.
- Korean, HK, and Taiwan legacy charset decoding in iconv.
- Stateful legacy charset decoding (ISO-2022) (undecided).

Documentation. (Details already posted in other threads)

Source-level compatibility goals:
- LAMP stack
- OpenWRT
- GUI stacks (GTK3, Qt, Webkit, deps like Pango, Cairo, etc.)
- Wine (?)
- Development stack (GCC, LLVM/clang, GDB, strace, ...)
- Xorg (with actual drivers)
- LFS stack (minus possibly some useless stuff)
- SIP/VOIP/telephony (PJSIP, Asterisk?, ...)
- Multimedia (FFmpeg/libav/x264/etc.)

Testing goals:
- Extend existing tests to cover everything that's likely to have
  arch-specific breakage; ensure that all archs pass.
- Review third-party tests (Open POSIX Test Suite, gnulib, etc.) and
  ensure that the only remaining failures are erroneous tests.
- Establish a pre-release testing procedure.
