For Void users: do you use the version with musl? If yes, how do you manage software which is not in the musl repository?
Is the musl version really faster/lighter/whatever you want with respect to the glibc one?

I use the glibc version of (not really for any particular reason/aversion to the musl version – it's just what I started with last year and I haven't gotten around to experimenting)

I'd also be interested in any comparisons.

@AlexMV12 Not a Void user, but I got rid of some test failures related to libc in my work CI environment by getting rid of Alpine and musl and replacing them with Debian and glibc.
