I've read that page too... not really sure what you're saying though.
You could say I'm leaning toward the "linux without politics" usage
model. It's straight-forward to patch bionic to use /etc/resolv.conf,
and add crypt routines as well as /etc/passwd & /etc/group usage. That
can be done with bsd licensed code.

BSD userland politics aside, I wonder what the typical steps would be
to 'port' gentoo over to a bionic-based libc. Something like the
following?

1) manually build a bionic cross-toolchain
2) do some basic verification with the cross-toolchain (static exe,
exe that uses .so, .so, etc)
3) build a native toolchain with the cross-toolchain, record build
steps / patches along the way
4) manually bootstrap gentoo natively, record build steps / patches
along the way
5) set up overlays: portage, crossdev, bionic, gcc, etc

C
