Do you have any preferance as to when that occurs?  The next glibc
upload includes '--enable-libio' and libc0.3 as the packages.  Our
staging archive has ~1000 packages in it.  It appears to work (massive
compiles, and uploads and downloads using ssh and apt-get) to basic

The only thing I'm not certain about yet is why make check is failing.
I've set that as one of my tasks this week.

I didn't manage to test it Saturday (the weather was too nice),
although I have emailed with the oskit package maintainer about making
sure that Jon's patch gets in there.

I would like to put a sample package of oskit-mach up somewhere for
people to play with.  It seems to work well enough on my system, that
it's now my first choice in the grub menu.

I seem to remember you emailing a bit ago asking for folks to test
this for possible inclusion in glibc-2.2.  I'm hoping to do that
testing (Unless someone beats me to it, which I wouldn't mind)

I just caught up on the libc-alpha mail this evening.  I'll try and
figure out the right fix and get it submitted in time for the gcc-3.1
