I'd favour having not ICEing on the 8000 packages be included in the
application testing in the release criteria (rather than just the handful
of software currently there). How long does it take to do a build of 8000
packages, and could there be an automatic regression tester for mainline
doing those tests (and reporting regressions since last test to
gcc-regression - ideally with .i files to reproduce the failures)?
(The criterion needs to be "not ICEing" rather than actually successfully
building the packages, because there will inevitably be changes breaking
old invalid C++ code etc..)
