What do you folks need me to do? Presumably bring gm2 up to the latest gcc cvs with its regression test suite working etc?

Yup, basically, submit a patch against mainline that meets our requirements and ask for approval.


Roughly, all isolatable non-gm2 changes that aren't gm2 specific should be split out and submitted separately, say for example you fixed a generic const-folding bug, it reviewed and goes in as a 5 line const-folding change, not as 5 lines in a 60,000 line patch.

The front-end should be off by default, see gcc/objcp for example. It should not cause any regressions or build failures on any machines for any non-gm2 language.

See http://gcc.gnu.org/contribute.html for some of the obvious things.
