Although I do welcome your action, and stepping in to offer a solution
to this, I feel like forking might have the potential of making this
situation worse, including, but not limited to:
- creating confusion between uclibc and uclibc-ng
- pissing off Bernhard
- duplicating existing infrastructure instead of gaining access to it
- what if you end up in the same situation as uClibc, we all have busy lives?
Thomas and I talked to Khem Raj about this uClibc situation during ELC
back in June, and Khem offered some help to see if we could:
- make Bernhard aware of the lack of release situation
- use his uclibc.org access to facilitate a 0.9.34? release
