I hope I didn't open up a can of worms with my last question on PCRE
library versus other regex libraries, but I think it at least lead to some
useful information for the wiki about musl's regex implementation and an
interesting point about NetBSD using TRE and a possibility of sharing bug
fixes with that project.  So, I'll just mention this in passing for those
who are interested in C++ in addition to C.  (If you prefer C only, feel
free to ignore it.)  There's a thread I thought was interesting regarding
using C++ with embedded systems over on LinkedIn

Hope something takes off with Rob Landley's suggestion about a site for
embedded Linux from Scratch information.  I'd be very interested in seeing
further information on pros and cons and efficiencies of using various
libraries and applications (like make style utilities, bash-like shells,
etc.).  Would also be useful to know what's been done, what could be redone
better, what's in progress, etc.  Seems like there's a very good knowledge
base from the people on the musl mailing list and the members give more
informative responses (regarding performance, efficiency, algorithms,
what's already been coded) than many of the posts I read on some of the LFS
mailing lists.  It's especially helpful when you don't have time to comb
through all the code of the various implementations available to just be
able to ask others who have already investigated and found good working
solutions what they recommend.  I'd be very interested in hearing opinions
and pros and cons on other utilities and libraries.  However, it just feels
off-topic to ask on this list since it's more peripherally related to using
musl even though the most interesting responses would probably come from
here.  lfs has a chat list for topics that don't fall into the other lfs
mailing categories.  Maybe something similar could be useful or maybe some
resource for newbies to embedded systems could fill the purpose.
