static linux is based on a hand selected collection of the best tools for each task and each tool being statically linked (including some X clients such as st, surf, dwm, dmenu),

It also targets binary size reduction through the avoidance of glibc and other bloated GNU libraries where possible (early experiments show that statically linked binaries are usually smaller than their dynamically linked glibc counterparts!!!). Note, this is pretty much contrary to what Ulrich Drepper reckons about static linking.

Due to the side-benefit that statically linked binaries start faster, the distribution also targets performance gains.

Contributing is still in a design phase. You can contribute by adding ideas to the sandbox or by working on the masterplan.
