- Subject: Removing posix/glob directory
The posix/glob directory contains build support for a standalone
distribution of the glob and fnmatch code, for copying into other
packages. The standard way to use bits of glibc code in other packages is
now gnulib; I don't think a standalone distribution of glob is useful any
more (or that glibc is the place to maintain such build support for
external use). Thus, I propose to remove this directory (subject to
testing to make sure there aren't any hidden uses of it in building /
testing / installing glibc). Comments?
