Thanks Diego. Your explanation and that of others in this thread has
really helped clarify the status of tree-ssa for me. Based on what
I've heard, it sounds like you (collectively) have made terrific
I still think we should give high priority to some of the issues
raised like regressions and documentation, but these don't have to be
blockers as long as they is a commitment to address them. (Again, my
mental model is the new C++ parser.)
There are a lot of reasons to suggest we should merge now or real soon
and at this point I'm inclined to agree with them.
However I'd like to hear the perspective of our release manager as
well as that of some of our global write maintainers who haven't been
immersed in the branch and haven't yet spoken up before we pull the
trigger on this.
