we’ve started to change function signature of some of API class. In the process, I completed changes to NSFileManager and its dependant code including TestFoundation. Here is the pull request for the same https://github.com/apple/swift-corelibs-foundation/pull/317

This is something we really do need some help with. Our goal is to have the Linux version match the Darwin version exactly.
There is also a PR up to change some of the results of the automatic renaming by the importer, here:
So we should take those into account as well.

As you know, currently, as of the 03-24 DEVELOPMENT snapshot, the function signatures for Foundation has diverged. This has caused us to create platform specific calls to the NSString, NSDate, NSCache, etc. classes. For instance,
#if os(Linux) <ecblank.gif>
<ecblank.gif> let lastSlash = fileName.rangeOfString("/", options: NSStringCompareOptions.BackwardsSearch)
<ecblank.gif> let lastSlash = fileName.range(of: "/", options: NSStringCompareOptions.backwardsSearch)
I was curious about the timeline for the migration to the newer APIs and whether someone in particular was working on it. We have some developers here at IBM@Swift that could do some of this work, but want to make sure we aren't duplicating work and are coordinated.
