Are any GCC developers (including developers for language front ends not
yet distributed with GCC) actively involved with the relevant language
It has from time to time been noted that there was a lack of GCC input
(beyond public comments from some people) into C9X development, and that
committee members weren't familiar with GCC extensions. It was also for a
long time the case that GNU seemed to prefer its own version of "embrace
and extend" to standards and portability. While the latter has improved,
has the former (lack of involvement in standards development)?
