[cfe-dev] where to send test suite errors

illumos has done a free and clear implementation of locale support for
libc, and, in fact, it was taken from FreeBSD. Have a look at:


I'd love it if we could get libc++ ported to illumos. I've got two
bugs already filed for issues I had with the build infrastructure that
our porting system turned up (12517 & 12518). I'll file another issue
for the test suite issues, of which there were three for LLVM and one
for clang IIRC.
