glibc and the Linux libc fork

Having read about the libc5 fork of glibc in Rick Moen's "Fear of Forking"
essay, I went looking for more info about this fork since it seems to have
healed so well that no one ever talks about it anymore.  It also seems
strangely underdocumented for a 10 year old event in a community that values
putting everything about everything online.

If anyone knows any other sources of info that I didn't reference, I'd be
happy to hear about them.
