libxpc is an incredibly useful inter-process communication library for OS X. Like libdispatch (, it would be great if open-source work could be done to port it to Linux. It would also help with Swift 3 goals such as porting SourceKit (heavily dependent on libxpc) to Linux.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit in your favorite browser.

Expected Results:
A web page hosting the source code to libxpc is displayed.

Actual Results:
A 404 is returned.
