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.
