Subject: Re: possible malware link on musl community wiki

I did find the Github for the musl wiki and did a pull request to check all the links, but there's pull requests that are like five years old and still open, and only just a handful at that. So it appears maybe the maintainer has abandoned it. I could be wrong about that though. At the time I sent the email to the musl mailing list, I wasn't aware the musl wiki only takes contribs through Github and they're vetted. I just assumed random people could contribute, and then I thought great, what other links are like this? I know I didn't want to click around and find out after that. Thank goodness it was a near fresh install from a distro hop, so I just wiped the drive and started over just to be safe. I figured perhaps it was their official page that got abandoned and scraped up by a bot or something. On the IRC they said the wiki hasn't been maintained in a while.

I did a bit of research and it appears they moved to gitlab instead. No clue what their homepage is now, though. Ciao, Markus
