The Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit is an exclusive, invitation-only summit gathering core kernel developers, distribution maintainers, ISVs, end users, system vendors and other community organizations for plenary sessions and workgroup meetings to meet face-to-face to tackle and solve the most pressing issues facing Linux today. If your company is not a member of The Linux Foundation and you are interested in joining please visit our website to learn more about how you can become a Corporate Member.
The GNU C Library (GLIBC) is a part of almost all Linux systems deployed today. Along with GCC the library is part of the framework that implements the userspace requirements for several standards including ISO C and POSIX. After a whirlwind tour of new features and changes we go back in time and compare against last years short, medium, and long term goals for the project. We see where we've fallen short and need community assistance, particularly in the area of performance monitoring in a project whose stated goal is to be a high performance library.
