Re: will openacc 2.0 be merged into trunk?


When you said "Codesoucery", do you mean the core gcc release team who
is in charge to decide what goes into the trunk, or do you mean the
software called "Codesourcery":

In any case, the people in charge of the gomp-4.0_branch need to
approach the gcc release team *immediately* and explain why openacc is
essential for gcc 5, and why openacc is ready to merge into the trunk.
We need timely intervention from the gcc release team to ensure
openacc makes it to gcc 5
