Release Manager Q&A on August 5th
The usual GCConIRC GCC channel is used for the discussion.
If you would like to ask a question, but will not be able to participate, please add your question below. The RMs will do their best to answer those questions as well as those posed live during the chat.
- Estimated 4.6 release planing - in particular: When will Stage 1 end? (Tobias)
- Some recent developments have shown that it is possible to build different parts of the toolchain from shared components, and this may lead to faster development, better integration, and better user-experience. Do the RMs consider that this would be possible/beneficial to share more code between gcc, gas, gdb, gld and gold?
What is the RMs opinion about http://developer.apple.com/technologies/tools/whats-new.html#llvm-compiler ?
- What directions/projects/technologies would like the RMs to see in GCC in the future?
