So dejagnu is independent of most things and downloads and installs in seconds, upgrading it shouldn't pose a problem for anyone that can build gcc.

That said, a little surprising that SLE is lagging everyone else so hard.  Looking at the 42.2 EOL plans, and that would put switching degagnu versions at around 13 months from now, if we waited.

So, how much would you mind, for trunk to require a newer a dejagnu?  If just a little, I'm inclined to not wait and support updating now.  If please god no, then I don't see the harm in waiting 13 months.  Leap 42.3 is out in 3 months, so the sooner update time would be just 3 months.  Could you jump to Leap 42.3 at that time?
