Notability[edit]

I note that the article has been marked by a notability template without a proper text in this talk page. Why is it not notable? For the reason of mechanically applying a policy? While reliable secondary sources is a good thing, the fact that I surfed to here in order to find an alternative to the bloated malformed C98 libc is an indication of the inherent notability of the article ― one might reasonably wish to have 2ndary sources on topics in general in WP. However: for software, this shouldn't be erected a requirement in order to allow the article a continuing existence, because the software users tend to communicate with the primary source of the software, and otherwise be almost silent. I believe the notability policy should be executed by a certain care as regards to software, so in order to provocate awareness of this care, I'm now, without searching consensus, provocatively going to remove the notability template. ... said: Rursus (bork²) 18:16, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Spelling of the subject of this article[edit]

Is it "newlib" or "Newlib"? Both are currently used. --Mortense (talk) 22:59, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
