A package was submitted to savannah.nongnu.org

Robert Millan <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
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
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.
