Actually, what I am doing is for the kual-system thing mike.
Trying to put together a TINY seed debian to allow us to *background* chroot - thus enabling the newer libc and libm dependant apps to have access to "newer" versions of this things.
In the end I am hoping to dynamically run this from a squash or cram fs.
(Yup just re-using your ideas in a different context as usual)
Could be a fools errand. (thus I chose to walk the road alone until I was sure it wasn't)
I'm retrying with wheezy now. see if I can get something a bit more "stable" going. Also SID is a huge (250mb) pull lately. wheezy can be trimmed I am hoping to something a bit more sensible with love and sticky tape
I would dearly love to know where to track the version bumps though.
If I had to guess: the patches tracker for debian. probably the libc stuff (but as you know I am no expert)
