If anybody on the team right now is the perfect person for this task, it's you; I just wasn't clear on whether you'd have any hope of having time for it. If it's borderline whether you would or not, perhaps we could find someone else to be a "research assistant" for the testing project. This could involve tasks like: - Reading the git log and making a list of noteworthy bugs to add regression tests for. - Determining (perhaps via automated coverage tools) major code we lack any testing for. - Cross-checking glibc bug tracker and/or glibc tests for issues that should be checked in musl too.
