Today in #musl someone was asking about trouble getting gnulib-based builds to work with cross compiling, and encountered some really outdated (and unnecessarily ranty) information in the FAQ on the wiki. The actual modern solution is really simple, just supplying a config.cache that sets the things that can't be detected because they depend on ability to execute test programs, but the FAQ has a whole lot of hackish alternative ideas that are going to turn into big pitfalls and detract from the actual solution. I haven't looked through more yet, but I suspect we have a lot more similar outdated and/or unfocused content on the wiki that should be streamlined to guide users to what's actually going to solve their problem or answer their question. Any volunteers for helping to overhaul the wiki? The first task is probably just making a list of content that's dubious (outdated or otherwise) and needs attention. Next would be either opening discussions or proposing patches directly for fixing it. Rich
