And yes, I publicized that fact when I noticed it: Do you realize that the uclibc-ng project has a mailing list? It is active, people post patches, and they get merged. I posted patches on this list, they were merged by Waldemar within the next day or two. > Your fork clearly hasn't fixed any of the structural issues uClibc > developed over the years. Waldemar has fixed the main problem of uClibc: the lack of regular releases, the lack of a responsive maintainer that merges patches. Then, from a technical point of view, Waldemar has added new features, dropped badly supported architectures, cleaned up a lot of things, improved the test suite, and more. There are probably a tons of other things to improve in uClibc-ng, but it's just a matter of receiving contributions: we can no longer blame the lack of maintainership.
