Subject: Request for volunteers

Hi all,

With us nearing musl 1.0, there are a lot of things I could use some
help with. Here are a few specific tasks/roles I'm looking for:

1. Put together a list of relevant conferences one or more of us could
   attend in the next 4-6 months. I'm in the US and travelling outside
   the country would probably be prohibitive unless we also find
   funding, but anything in the US is pretty easy for me to get to,
   and other people involved in the project could perhaps attend
   other conferences outside the US.

2. Organize patches from sabotage, musl-cross, musl pkgsrc, etc. into
   suitable form for upstream, and drafting appropriate emails or bug
   reports to send.

3. Check status of musl support with build systems and distros
   possibly adopting it as an option or their main libc. This would
   include OpenWRT, Aboriginal, crosstool-ng, buildroot, Alpine Linux,
   Gentoo, etc. If their people doing the support seem to have gotten
   stuck or need help, offer assistance. Make sure the wiki is kept
   updated with info on other projects using musl we we can send folks
   their way too.

4. Wikimastering. The wiki could use a lot of organizational
   improvement, additional information, and monitoring for outdated
   information that needs to be updated or removed.

5. Rigorous testing. My ideal vision of this role is having somebody
   who takes a look at each bug fix committed and writes test cases
   for the bug and extrapolates tests for possible related bugs that
   haven't yet been found. And who reads the glibc bug tracker so we
   can take advantage of their bug reports too.

Anyone up for volunteering? :-)
