Whatever may be written in your MAINTAINERS file, I am, in effect,
the person in the OpenBSD project who does try to keep things more or
less synchronized between both projects (with not as much success as I'd
like, due to some cultural differences... I don't always have to prod on
both sides to get the patches fully tested, and then approved).

So, in fact, yes, writing me down as official maintainer for OpenBSD would
be good. If nothing else, it would reflect what's actually going on.

If anybody wants to know, people at OpenBSD actively fixing gcc issues
include me, Miod Vallat, Anil Madhavapeddy, and of course, Etoh Hiroaki.
Mark Kettenis has taken over gdb and a big part of binutils, which is a
huge help.

We do have some local differences, not much more than NetBSD, for instance,
the biggest current one being that our gcc 3.3.5 includes ProPolice
support, and a few backported patches as ProPolice triggers some ICEs.

We have finally switched over i386 to 3.3.5, we do support something like
16 distinct architectures. For GCC, this translates into m68k (still at
2.95.3 and dying), m88k (possibly dying even more), alpha, powerpc, amd64,
hppa, hppa64, sparc, sparc64, vax, arm, and mips64...
