Subject: [gentoo-dev] RFC: dropping support for uclibc-ng
Date: Mon, 04 Jan 2021 16:29:15
1 Hi everyone,
3 I'd like feedback from people about the possibility of dropping support
4 for uclibc-ng. If you are unfamiliar, its the successor to uclibc as a
5 C Standard Library for embedded systems, ie a replacement for glibc
6 bloat. However, it is inferior to musl which serves the same purpose
7 and which has now well supported in Gentoo.
9 I know people want musl support, but does anyone even care about
10 uclibc-ng? If not, I can work towards deprecating it and putting what
11 little time I have towards musl.
