the names in the posting are just the "86open steering committee"
members, not the entire group of people who have been involved in
from netbsd, both cgd and myself are on the main mailing list
(and i was invited to the first meeting but couldn't go because it
was Cal. and i live in new jersey). no core though.
from freebsd, jkh has been involved on the mailing list.
openbsd was invited to participate in the project but they
decided not to.
i'm not sure who, if anyone, from BSDI is involved.
the GNU C lib is not required, it is just one reference lib
that is being worked with. i suspect that if 86open flies the BSD
folk will have a BSD-based option.
from what i have seen of the group, it would be
possible for me to be much more active in it if i had the time
to spare. [i.e. i don't think i would be excluded just because
i am a BSD person]. it would prob. be a good idea to get someone
who likes to work on userland/standards and has some spare time to
monitor this effort. i would suggest jtc, but it isn't clear to me
that he has any spare time.
