> Builds of libuv on kFreeBSD and the Hurd have been failing:
Just to track the status of this:
* 0.10.17-1 is now in sid. This is latest upstream stable release, and
I consider the package ready for use.
* kfreebsd port is done (thanks to kapouer for the initial patch) at
Patch not yet upstreamed, a bit more of polishing needed.
* kfreebsd-amd64 builds fine and passes all tests. -i386 builds fine but
fails in a test with an impossible return value from pthread_create().
I couldn't reproduce this under gdb in the porterbox.
This probably means something race-y and a related issues in eglibc,
I'll ask some helps from porters.
* hurd port is not done. rust, nodejs and julia (main libuv clients)
won't build there, so I've put this at low priority.
I won't be working on this, but I'll be happy to help, test and
integrate any contributed patches.
libev/libevent (main libuv competitors) are available on hurd, so
maybe upstream is interested in this for the sake of portability.
