I'm starting to make available per ftp all the different patches for
glibc 2.1.2 I've got. For now, it's just those patches that are
already in the development version of glibc 2.2. During the next days
I'll try to put more patches there and I'm also trying to test them.
The patches are untested. For now they are not enough to get a working
glibc 2.1.2 on MIPS/Linux. I encourage others  to test, fix and
enhance the patches - and then send your contribution to me.
My goal is to get a working glibc 2.1.2 on MIPS/Linux and to get all
needed patches into the glibc development version so that the next
major release of glibc (2.2) will run without further patches on
MIPS/Linux. I'll therefore try to integrate all patches I get into
The central collection should help us avoiding to duplicate work.
The ftp location is: ftp.suse.com/pub/people/aj/glibc-mips.
 I'll do the same.
