Hi all,

I'm interested in applying for Google Summer of Code and wanted to work 
in some project in the area of parallel/multi-core programming. Looking 
through the GCC GSoC Wiki page I found a subject that sounds really 
interesting to me in the "Speed Up" section: Multithreaded linker.
Could anyone give me more information about this, since it lacks a 
description in the wiki? The idea is to parallelize the current linker 
or build one from scratch. What are the requirements?


PS: Sorry if this isn't the appropriate mailing list for this question, 
but I couldn't find a better one ;)
