Hi, I'm trying to build a kinda-distribution of linux on arm64 where all the userspace is done with clang and which uses systemd. I can either use glibc or musl. Glibc aggressively does not want to be compiled by anything else than gcc. Musl is missing a bunch of stuff systemd wants. I have two possibilities, either make glibc work but not contribute the changes (because I don't want to give my copyright to the fsf) or extend musl until it has all the missing APIs and contribute them. I'd rather do the latter. Some APIs (qsort_r) are clearly going to be added in the future. Others are very glibc, e.g. printf configurability stuff, and do not come from any standard. So, is "this API is used by systemd" a good enough reason to accept it as in-scope for musl or will there be things that are "never" going to be accepted? Best regards, OG.  This list is not the place to bitch about systemd or my hobby choices  This list is not the place to bitch about the FSF copyright policies either  Patches have to be good by themselves, of course Content of type "text/html" skipped
