I have been threatening to apply my treelang patch for some time, but
before I do I just want to make sure exactly which branch to check it
Here are the current branches
dfa-branch. This branch contains the insn scheduler with an automaton
based pipeline hazard recognizer.
It appears that gcc_latest_snapshot is the latest version of gcc3.1,
gcc_ss_yyymmdd is a weekly snapshot of whatever is the current
production branch (at present gcc3.1).
It also appears that MAIN is what will turn into gcc3.2. The last five
branches in the list are specialised for various optimisation/cpu
support projects, the *-win32-b20 branch is for win32 and the others are
My thinking is that I would patch to the main/default/non-branch (gcc3.2
experimental). This is the one that will turn into gcc3.2. Then I can
track gcc3.2 from there.
So treelang would be in gcc3.2 but not any earlier release. The other
alternative would be to put it in gcc-3.1-branch which is according to
me the current gcc3.1 bleeding edge.
If I have gotten this wrong could someone please let me know.
Assuming this is right I will need to make some updates as someone has
revamped the langhooks again.
