There is very active discussion of how best to move forward on IRC in the #gentoo-hardened and especially #gentoo-moz channels.
I don't think Anarchy as lead 'beta channel dev' sees this list, but is always active on getting newer versions working with musl
in the ::musl overlay. We remain very dependent on rust from smaeul's overlay, but I know gyakovlev is trying to integrate that
better into both ::musl and ::gentoo main repositories.

If there are active dev-hours, please let's not duplicate effort, and make use of the diversity of interests on the difficult
aspects of musl integration across the distros and platforms we share!

Thanks.
