The GNU C Library is used as the C library in the GNU systems and most systems with the Linux kernel. The library is primarily designed to be a portable and high performance C library. It follows all relevant standards including ISO C11 and POSIX.1-2008. It is also internationalized and has one of the most complete internationalization interfaces known.

This BoF aims to bring together developers of other components that have dependencies on glibc and glibc developers to talk about the following topics:

  • Observability: LD_AUDIT, PLT optimizations, and interposition.
  • Planning for glibc 2.35 and what work needs to be done between August 2021 and January 2022.
  • Planning for glibc 2.36 and what work needs to be done between January 2022 and July 2022.

... and more.
