This is just a friendly heads-up that the objc-improvements-branch,
previously used to integrate Apple's ObjC fixes into the mainline,
shall henceforth be used to develop the Objective-C++ front-end,
to be integrated into mailine 3.5 upon completion.

I assume the branch will be used only for objective-c++, and that any other objective-c changes (ie. that affect normal objective-c) will be separated out for review; right? I have a big interest in keeping objective-c working for us (GNUstep and related projects), but since I don't have a real interest in objective-c++ per se, I'm not going to track the branch and test/fix the GNU runtime side of things (unlike last time).

There is a small chance that there may be some NeXT-only ObjC fixes in
addition to ObjC++. Of course, if/when objc-improvements-branch is ready
to be integrated into mainline, _all_ of it will be subject to review. :-)

Also, as I commit things, I can send copies of the ChangeLog to gcc-patches,
so that you can get a bird's eye view of what is happening. Would that be helpful?
