Subject: Post-1.1.9 roadmaps, towards 1.2

I updated the wiki roadmap page to:


= musl 1.1.10 =

Estimated release: June

Primary targets:
* Resolving GCC symbol-versioning incompatibility issue - see
  http://www.openwall.com/lists/musl/2015/05/10/1
* Auto-generation of CFI directives for asm sources - see
  http://www.openwall.com/lists/musl/2015/05/12/3
* Enhanced LSB/glibc ABI-compat, especially fortify __*_chk symbols
* New getlogin[_r] with lookup via controlling tty

Secondary targets:
* Many cleanup tasks - see
  http://www.openwall.com/lists/musl/2015/05/02/1
* Some remaining pending patches - see
  http://www.openwall.com/lists/musl/2015/04/28/5
* Remapping of glibc-ABI-incompatible symbols (regexec, etc.) by
  dynamic linker


= musl 1.1.11 =

Estimated release: July

Primary targets:
* LC_COLLATE implementation
* IDN support in DNS resolver
* Message translation support for dynamic linker


As usual this can be shuffled around. I feel like the above items
would put us in a good position for 1.2.0 as the next release,
hopefully with just a few minor bug fixes. Of course there are also
out-of-tree things I want for 1.2:

* Non-glibc-based nscd-protocol backend for LDAP (and perhaps NIS)
* Locale data and libc message translations
* External header-file-only fortify library providing _FORTIFY_SOURCE
  feature
* Major documentation update/additions
* New website at musl.libc.org

I believe the fortify stuff is basically done (Alpine is using it) but
other items are still unstarted or in very early stages.
