Hi James.... I liked reading your reply....

I don't know where you got the grasshopper bit from though... I've
been on this list for a looong time. I just choose not to talk much :)
Too many mailing lists... too little time!

Most of the embedded gentoo stuff I did was targeting armv4t, and the
company I did it for didn't actually sell devices, just services -
which meant that a lot of work I did wasn't legally required to be
made open-source. Thankfully, I no longer work for them and have much
better toys to play with now (e.g. beagle xM, panda, etc).

As for the BSD stuff, I agree. I think it's important to give back and
try to get bionic ELIBC to a somewhat stable level of support.
Naturally, that means being assigned bugs :P.

I would certainly be willing to 'own' some bugs within some reasonable
bounds (e.g. bionic's libstdc++ doesn't support exceptions... the
pthread lib doesn't support pthread_cancel). It's more or less
intended as a platform for managed code - .ie. Java. Although Python,
Mono, and Lua also work to some extent.

Linaro seems to want the bionic + gcc marriage to work too (i.e.
-mandroid), otherwise asac wouldn't have submitted patches for gcc.
Linaro has an army of engineers at their disposal and I would imagine
some of them probably use Gentoo too ;-)
