Done, but may need further testing before thinking about release. > - Overhaul resolver to better provide legacy APIs without code dup. I haven't started looking at this again yet. If I don't get to it soon I would not mind pushing it back since I'd rather keep momentum of the release schedule than meet every single goal. But I don't think it's particularly hard either. > - Hybrid automatic/manual audit for cruft and code smells. Any suggestions on techniques to use here? > - Resolve symlink direction issue for dynamic linker. This issue has been around way too long. I really want it fixed for the next release. Any ideas on how to best allow "make install" without permissions or overriding $syslibdir? The idea is I want it to be possible to install a _development_ environment in a user-writable $prefix that generates binaries whose PT_INTERP is the standard /lib/ld-musl-$(ARCH).so.1. This would not be a working runtime environment, of course. If I recall, we had some decent ideas before; maybe I should look back at them. > - Affinity/cpuset interfaces. Last time I started working on this, I got sick of it before I got very far. There are just so many tedious macros/inline-functions to implement. I was also frustrated with having to put so much code in a public header. For this, I'd really like some help on both: - ideas for making it less hideous, and - actually writing it out. With the above in mind, I think we're mostly on schedule for the release roadmap. And we might be partly ahead of schedule on other items: > 0.9.13 > Projected release: Early August > Key targets: > [...] > - Establish formal procedure for regression testing. nsz is working on the test package which looks like it includes some regression testing already.
