Subject: Can I get some interest in the uclibc-0.9.33.ebuild
Date: Thu, 01 Mar 2012 10:44:06 +0000
Hi, could all uclibc users take a peek at: 
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=308477

I have bumped the ebuild to 0.9.33 and also added some extremely hacky 
patches to build iconv (and accidentally also locale) support.  From my 
limited understanding this almost works as expected and seems very 
achievable to get to a fully working state.  The iconv support is the 
main thing I wanted. Locales seem to be included as part of the same 
uclibc config switch, but don't add that much extra space - it would be 
nice to have them independently selectable though

I need some help:
- Testing the iconv stuff and working on the patches so they can go upstream
- Fixing the ebuild to have an iconv flag to bring this stuff in a 
selectable way
- Fixing the ebuild to allow selectable locales in some gentoo 
acceptable way?
- Testing with hardened, ie gcc-4.5.3-r2 and the adjusted variable as 
per bug (this brings SSP support to gcc on uclibc)
- Testing on as many other architectures than x86 as possible...

The goal is to get this into tree as a masked ebuild as soon as 
possible.  The rest of the tree is growing away from supporting uclibc 
because its the easiest option. However, if we can get 0.9.33 in good 
shape then we have a modern drop in libc replacement which supports 
modern hardened compilers, nptl and more - it's then feasible to start 
filing bugs to other packages to add small patches as appropriate.  In 
particular having even partially working iconv support in uclibc would 
appear to reduce the number of packages with uclibc conditional compiles 
by a large chunk...

Grateful for help getting this in shape

Thanks

Ed W
