Robert Millan <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: other
Other License: patches for the GNU C library should be licensed under the LGPL 
and have their copyright assignable to the FSF so they can be integrated in 
Glibc when they're ready.

patches for *BSD's sources (this typically means the kernel or its headers) 
should be licensed under the modified BSD license , so that they are acceptable 
for the *BSD developers and may also be integrated.

Package: Glibc support for *BSD's kernels
System name: glibc-bsd
Type: non-GNU

The purpose of this project is to maintain a set of patches for the GNU C 
library to add support for *BSD kernels. The idea is to use it as a repository 
for ongoing, experimental work untill we have the necessary technical and legal 
(copyright assignments) requirements so that *BSD support can be fully 
integrated in Glibc's sources.

At that point, the project might still be useful for bleeding-edge changes, 
support for newer versions of *BSD kernels, maintaining a set of patched kernel 
headers for every released *BSD kernel version or general discussion of 
development issues with Glibc on *BSD kernels.

Some relevant references follow.
