although I follow this list for a few years, it's actually my first post. I
agree community would be on top, so let's say one would like to contribute
to the project... What would be the greatest motivating factor?
Licensing, portability, quality of codebase, standards conformance and
hopefully performance (though I don't have benchmarks to substantiate
this claim right now)
Based on the commit logs - how much non-Apple/general clang
contributions does libc++ get? STL hacking isn't the sexiest project to
contribute to generally..
This project has been relatively quiet; There's now libc++, which can
probably better attract developers (specially given its connection with
STLport's last release was 2008 and I'm not sure how much potential
could be derived from that....
- as fair as I know Window/Linux are not complete yet; I guess
STLport is also missing C++11, but I'd assume it's more widely spread than
the STDCXX and with more derivations, then more potential as well.
I know of a few companies/projects using stdcxx, but it's probably
better to leave this as a TODO.

STDCXX be awesome and differentiate from the others. Portability, i18n...
