Debian and its clones Via LWN, we found a blog post of a Debian maintainer which announces a new package: EGLIBC, a compatible reimplementation of the GNU glibc which "which will soon replace the GNU C Library". Apparently the primary reason is the sadly famous bad maintainership aptitude of Ulrich Drepper, the main libc maintainer.

According to the Bug-Reports 'Discussions' he's having with some fellow developpers... He does look like a major asshole.

I sincerely hope that this is more the exception than the norm... But still... I would not hire that guy. He seems to have some serious attitudes issues...
