Wow, I Need to Get a Life

This weekend (I think, maybe earlier), Slashdot published some statistics about the most active people. Apparently I am in the top four most active commenters for the past month and the past quarter. This is quite depressing.

In happier, and unrelated news, my FreeBSD commit bit was approved this weekend, so I can now cause untold destruction on the Internet at large...

Congratulations. Being an active part of a very active community is an achievement.

I just hit 45,000 Wikipedia edits, if that makes you feel any better.

Congratulations! No small achievement, both of them. What are you going to be working on for FreeBSD?

I was paid by the FreeBSD Foundation to implement the xlocale APIs for libc. Pretty much all of the libc functions that use a locale now have a _l variant that takes an explicit locale_t, and they all now use per-thread locales, rather than the global one, if one is set.

The point of this was to make porting libc++ easier, since libc++ (originally being developed on Darwin) uses these APIs for all of its locale stuff. I also wrote / maintain libcxxrt, which slots in under libc++. I have a huge FreeBSD patch that lets libc++ work on FreeBSD (and, actually, to pass more tests than it passes on Darwin). The goal is to commit it, possibly with a few cleanups, so that for FreeBSD 10 we can have a completely GNU-free C++ stack. The only part missing is the linker, and there's some work underway to fix that.
