Subject: Material for the wiki

Hi everyone,

Aside from coding, I've been working a bit on the wiki (and so have
lots of other members of the community) to make accessible existing
information/documentation that was previously posted to the mailing
list or elsewhere, in a more public way. I've been trying to find more
posts like the ones I added on the Design Concepts page --
explanations of musl's implementation of various important
features/modules -- but so far I haven't found much. Somewhere we
should have a good descriptions of the TLS implementation and the
PRNGs. Other things that might have short write-ups somewhere already
are smooth sort, crypt (things like the approach and limits
on rounds), and perhaps malloc.

Also, if anyone in the community wants to work on documenting parts of
musl that aren't already documented, that would be great. I'm kind of
hoping we can turn the developer resources on the wiki into a sort of
staging ground for the official documentation.

Other general help on the wiki is welcome too.
