description="""
The Austin Group has accepted a proposal to extend the standard for posix_spawn(3)
to support chdir(2) functionality in the new created process.
This is useful and relatively easy to implement.

This project is about adding the full functionality as described in the Austin Groups
[ticket tracker](https://www.austingroupbugs.net/view.php?id=1208),
which means both kernel extensions as well as associated changes to the C library.
