Wilcox (awilfox) Project Lead, Ad?lie Linux > https://www.adelielinux.org There is very active discussion of how best to move forward on IRC in the #gentoo-hardened and especially #gentoo-moz channels. I don't think Anarchy as lead 'beta channel dev' sees this list, but is always active on getting newer versions working with musl in the ::musl overlay. We remain very dependent on rust from smaeul's overlay, but I know gyakovlev is trying to integrate that better into both ::musl and ::gentoo main repositories. If there are active dev-hours, please let's not duplicate effort, and make use of the diversity of interests on the difficult aspects of musl integration across the distros and platforms we share!
