From what I understand, Ulrich Drepper was perhaps the big reason for the fork, and now that he's gone maybe there's a big kumbaya happening

That said, despite what seems like a very hard person to work with I don't think one can doubt his technical ability. His 'what every programmer should know about memory' is the best source of information I've read on the subject.

musl right now (0.9.2) has partial LSB ABI support, which is a subset of glibc ABI.
Thanks for the info, are there any other features you'd like to hightlight outside the realm of small memory footprint? (although small memory footprint certainly is a great feature, particularly since my interest stems from stuff I'm thinking of doing with my Raspberry Pi)
