I still want to do the symlink direction, but I'm looking for a clean solution to the problem that it breaks build-only installs where the user does not have permissions to install the dynamic loader. But basically, this means the goals for release have largely been met. > And a few things that have been on the agenda but neglected for a long > time, which may stay that way unless anybody's excited about moving > them forward quickly: > > - zoneinfo > - inet_makeaddr > - scanf %m modifier > - getifaddrs > - cpuset/affinity > - ether.h functions Of these, getifaddrs is mostly done and presently in the repository. Haven't seen any action on the rest. As mentioned in the recent scanf thread, I discovered some conformance issues in scanf related to implementation of the %m modifier, and these will need to wait until after the next release. Haven't seen any interest in addressing the others, so they'll need to wait too, I think. Rich
