Re: [wwwdocs] - introduce GUPC project/branch

Looks good to me.  Some minor comments which I'd like to see addressed 
before it goes in, but nothing that would take more than a few minutes.  
And it's nice to see this documented so well.

Index: projects/gupc.html
+The GNU UPC compiler extends the capabilities of the
+<a href="";>GNU GCC</a> compiler.

Write this link as "../", since we have a mirror on, too,
or will have again soon.


Remove this.

+<li>Intel ia64 (Itanium) Linux uniprocessor and symmetric multiprocessor
+    systems (SuSe SEL 11)</li>

That would be "SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11" or "SLES 11".

+<li>Mips2 32-bit ABI and mips4 64-bit ABI (SGI IRIX 6.5)</li>

Doesn't MIPS have several different ABIs (n.. and o..)?  If you
can get the details, add them, but it's not a tragedy if not.

+<p>If you would like to learn of future ports to other platforms,
+or would like to discuss the feasibility of implementing GUPC
+on a platform of interest to you, we recommend that you join the
+<a href="";>
+GUPC discussion list</a>.

Later on this page, you have more details on the list itself.  Would
it be appropriate to make this an internal link to that part of the
page?  <a href="#list"> or similar and <h2 id="list">The GNU...</p>?

+<h2>Project goal</h2>

Usually people put project goals up relatively at the beginning of
a page, but that's your call, not mine.

+<p>We encourage everyone to
+<a href="../../contribute.html">contribute changes</a>
+and help test GUPC.  GUPC is currently an SVN branch.  We
+provide read access to our development sources for everybody with
+<a href="../../svn.html">anonymous SVN</a>.

Are you sure this shouldn't just be "../contribute.html" and 

+<p>Bugs in GUPC should be reported via
+<a href="";>bugzilla</a>.  In all cases,

Would you mind making this "GCC Bugzilla"?

If the quality of your code patches match this one, you have a
very solid piece of code. :-)
