Plans for 3.3 series

Thanks, Joe.

We just had a "GCC dinner" here in Kona, with lots of wishes/dreams
for GCC :-). 

   My plan for the 3.3 series is to have regular releases every 3
months until some indeterminate point in the future, that
indeterminate point being after - at least - two releases from the 3.4
branch.  After that indeterminate point, I'll make 2 releases every 6
months with no official announcements.  And after that, I will probably
close the branch depending on the situation of 3.4.x at that time.
The idea behind that is to give distributors and packagers a chance to
build from a regularly released "official 3.3.x tree" that have 3.3 ABI.

The tentative release date for GCC-3.3.3 is set January 31th.
