Wow. I just counted.
The snapshot has 85 PR's fixed in the core compiler, and 24 in the C++ front end,
"Amazingly active" is right. I think that an official release should be
put out containing those fixes; they've gotten lots of testing since
4.1-based distros are using those fixes, if I understand correctly.
Not even sure that we should close the branch if there's that much fixing
