Subject: [gentoo-dev] Its time to mask sys-libs/uclibc
Date: Fri, 23 Feb 2018 16:02:05
1 Hi everyone,
3 So if anyone has been following uclibc, you know that its development
4 stalled with its last official release in 2012 (
5 It was forked into uclibc-ng ( which has been
6 actively maintained since. All my uclibc work has been done using
7 sys-libs/uclibc-ng although the profile names still retain /uclibc/ in them.
9 Its time to mask and remove sys-libs/uclibc in favor of
10 sys-libs/uclibc-ng. This email is just an alert to the community that
11 I'm going to do that soon.
13 I'm not even sure a news item is needed here. What do people think? If
14 you think so, who do I even direct it at?
