Especially on Bug 1157850, that has been annoying me for quite a while. Most of our work has been on the Rust integration side, and also PowerPC (I believe mhoye added PowerPC to Tier 3 specifically because of the combined efforts of us and Fedora.) It would probably be best to tried and add musl as an "and" to the Tier 3 statement about the various architectures. This way it isn't specific to any one architecture nor maintainer, but rather a community effort from all interested people (you, us, Void, Alpine..) Best to you and yours, --arw -- A.
