To be honest, I find the rapid release model for glibc a bit annoying
as a downstream. Upstream projects which adopt this model and then require
constant attention from porters cause lots of stress for the less common
architectures. There are other upstream projects that want attention as
well and at some point it just will get extremely frustrating.

Is such a rapid release model really needed for something like a C library?

As for the testsuites: Adhemerval has gotten access from Debian to a
number of porterboxes for the various uncommon architectures, including
alpha, hppa, powerpcspe, sh4 and sparc64 and we're happy to give out
accounts to anyone interested.

And since Debian regularly updates glibc as well, you can get most testsuite
runs also by just checking the build logs (click on the green or red texts):


Note: Testsuites for sh4 and m68k are currently disabled.
