We will absolutely do this kind of outreach and more. I can guarantee
it as the glibc team lead for Red Hat.

One of the benefits of moving to a more transparent and consensus-based
development process is that we've begun to engage the downstream
distributions in the development effort. We have close contacts with
all the major distributions now and the ability to test experimental
changes quickly. This is something we've never had in the past, but is
now bearing fruit (broader and wider testing with better downstream input).
