In context of packaging libpthread/libpthread.
<pinotree> once libc is switched internally from cthreads to pthreads (thus
breaking its BC), may be worth cleanup the hurd-specific exported symbols
<tschwinge> pinotree: Yes. If you already have ideas about what to clean
up, feel free to add a new page or a section on open_issues/glibc.
<pochu> we're gonna break backwards compatibility in glibc on hurd? that
could be the perfect moment to fix the /dev/fd/N problem without adding
new RPCs, though we'd probably have to break backwards-compatibility in
the exec server IIRC...
<tschwinge> pochu: Oh, I have to re-read that discussion, but thanks for
GNU Savannah bug #28934, pochu,
