It is fine to hear, that there are serious attempts now to move forward
with the threads library.
If you need a voluteer I would like to put an offer.
I am used to the Win32 API and have a special interest in
work on the TSS part. (Especially the annoying DLL issue.)
I had already some contacts to Michael Glassford who seems for me
to be a very careful one when it comes to design considerations.
However it would be too bad if we needed a _complete_ rewrite of
the threading library. Could anyone please drop me some lines
why this should be necessary at all?
Is the new license thus incompatible to the old one?
Wasn't there already an established procedure of how to move forward
in case of a dropped out contributor?
As far as I understood the procedures, it should be sufficient to
have the code undergo a new review. If the old license
does not explicitely forbid this we can reuse the proven good parts
of the code (and there is lot of it!) in the renewd threads lib.
