  Glibc-head continues on its merry way from day to day.  The stable 
(2.3) branch is different - fixes get backported, but often only if the 
maintainer is confident they will fix a problem.

  We are using snapshots from glibc-head, it just happens that we're 
pretty happy with the weekly version we are using, for the platforms we 
know about.  Certainly we have glibc patches for mips_nptl and sparc_tls 
in the patches repo, a gcc mips_tls patch, and sparc binutils patches. 
Maybe some of these might point you towards what needs to be done.
