Are current Darwin maintainers working on fixing anything in the FSF sources?

Currently no. The transition to GPL v3 is problematic for us in the short/mid term. :-( Longer term, we'll see how it goes.

Thanks for explaining it here on the list. I hope the situation will be resolved for you all in the short term.

If not, maybe we need more Darwin maintainers.

Yes. The SC knows of the issue, and I've recommended soliciting/ accepting more darwin/Objective-C/C++ maintainers. If anyone would like to step up, just send an email to a SC member and have them forward it on to the SC for consideration.

If someone steps forward, are you allowed to follow the patches list and give feedback and/or approve patches for new contributors? I assume this is possible since you helped out with objc++ review for me just recently. But I wanted to be sure about what your restrictions are.
