Notes to go here.  * Attendees have asked for more than 1 hour for the BoF.
   * Lots of status to cover.
   * Lots of discussions to have.
   * Split into 2 parts, with a status part and a BoF part.

GNU Cauldron 2019 Agenda

On XXXX 2019 the GNU C Library community held a BoF at GNU Cauldron 2019.

  • Buildbot awareness and status.
    • How does one fix buildbot issues?
      • Who is responsible for each buildbot?
    • Who is responsible for fixing a regression?
  • ltrace/latrace/audit status
    • DJ to give some status update.
    • Merge latrace and ltrace?
    • Put it on gitlab, and call it part of the official glibc audit framework?
    • Have resurrected ltrace.
    • latrace is dead.
  • Contribution Checklist v2
  • GLIBC_PRIVATE mangling
    • Break applications using GLIBC_PRIVATE by mangling the symbol at every release or build?
  • Building independent parts of glibc
    • A libglibcmalloc.so - Independent malloc for testing experimental changes?
    • A libm.so & libmvec.so - Revisit discussion?

    • Does this matter if we are going to having just one library?
  • Update the glibc build infrastructure
    • Discuss getting accurate dependency information into the build system so we can do incremental build and test in as fast a time as possible.
    • Breaking up tests? Fast. Short. Fixed time.
  • Put glibc on gitlab?
    • Inconvenient to move.
    • Adds a PR workflow for those that like that.
    • Still supports email-based workflow.
    • Faster access to repository via Gitlab's servers (tested faster than sourceware).
    • Provides CI hooks for running build-many-glibcs for each PR.
  • How do we, as a core library, promote research into:
    • Extending the core APIs?
    • Change core behavior?
    • Add new tool interfaces?
    • Adding GLIBC_EXP symbol versions? How do you go from an experimental ABI to a stable one?
