adding uclibc snapshots maybe other (patched) variants 
might improve .... well some things (quality ? pressure to release new stable version?)

uclibc version "problems" affect other uclibc users too [0],[1],[2]
and this came up regularly in the past and its a little bit messy
to have potentially slightly different uclibc versions between projects
[3][4] (hoping that these are the correct uclibc patch/variants links for buildroot
and yocto project)

Its probably a good thing to get easier access to a uclibc variant than using 
- "abandoned" eglibc = bad ("EGLIBC is no longer developed and such goals 
  are now being addressed directly in GLIBC. ")
- musl ("experimental")
