Subject: Hi James McNellis

Does Microsoft has any plan to open source  Universal CRT?
I am interested in building a POSIX layer on Universal CRT by the
lightweight, musl is licensed under MIT, so that's
would be good.

The main reason to building such a layer is to ease the Open Source
world for porting things to
Window, at the current state, the ms c runtime is ANSI api, and not UTF8 api,
and that makes a lot problems for open source community,
And a lots of opensource libs are based on posix api, that's
make those libs porting to win32 are really frustrated.
So I am interested to port musl to win32 and making the open source
world more happy.
