Carlos O'Donell asked on https://sourceware.org/pipermail/libc-alpha/2022-July/141130.html > "Is there a public repo that I can use to cross-check the glibc value with the accepted ELF gABI value?" Yes, this is officially approved. The gABI committee runs mostly on consensus, but as a representative for Xinuos, I can offer the formal stamp of approval. I am under contract with Xinuos to maintain the ELF standard, and I have converted it from raw HTML to ReStructuredText format, with the goal of placing it into a github repository. That last part is not yet done, but as soon as I can, I'll make an updated version of the spec available. Until then, you'll need to reference the June 2013 version, with various gABI discussions to serve as amendments. As another quasi-authoritative source, the ELF include files in the binutils git repository are kept up to date with the gABI changes, and I'm about to commit a change there to reflect the new compression type. -cary
