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 The wiki could use a lot of organizational improvement, additional information, and monitoring for outdated information that needs to be updated or removed. 5.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? :-) Rich
