I didn't see that.  All they said was that 2.96 was a series of
development snapshot, not a release, and that bugs in it should be
reported to whoever provided the snapshot (due to an unfortunate
mistake by Red Hat, not changing the bug reporting address, which will
be corrected in the first errata release).

I find all this rather amusing.  The last Red Hat Linux compiler (for
the 6.x series) was also not a FSF release.  As part of its
contracting and compiler support work, Red Hat has shipped dozens of
compilers this year, none of which were based on FSF releases, and has
been doing this for about a decade.

I see.  By that logic, we also have `proof' that VA Linux owns

[Does anyone remember HJ's 2.7.*.* GCC releases?]
