That's likely the manual RMS kept asking folks (semi-privately) to
review. My response was consistently that such review should happen
publicly, which RMS opposed for reasons I don't recall.
I reviewed it, on the grounds that a happy rms is good for the gcc
project, and because I haven't been doing much else useful. It was a
lot of work, about 10 hours a week for 2 months. The document I
reviewed has significant differences from the one on the web site, but
has a lot of structural similarities. I think there is a major rewrite
still in progress. I pointed out all of the obvious stuff, features
dropped long ago, references to out-of-date standards, missing ISO C
2011 features, etc.
