I would like to see advancement made in terms of the testsuite.  In
particular, I would like to add back the infrastructure that was
appropriately donated to the FSF (testsuite/lib and old-deja.exp), and
then work on a list of known clean testcases.

I would like the see written down the guidelines given to the gcc team
by the FSF for what can be considered ours, so that I may use these
guidelines as the FSF intended to sort though my part of the testsuite
for C++ (I know it best), and add to the file that contains the list
clean testcases the files I think are clean.

I think others may be willing to step forward also, and do a similar
amount of work for the other parts.  In time, I think all the nice and
easy and short cases can be added back.

Then, I would like to see the release and snapshot process include the
clean version of the testsuite.  The unclean portions we can migrate
to unclean directories.

I haven't heard much in the way of planning concerning the testsuite,
and I don't know if this fits in with how things need to be done or
