Re: Why not contribute? (to GCC)

Wait, Libtool has a patch from you from 2006-01-12 in its tree,
<http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gnu.libtool.patches/6680>
Is that the one you're talking about?

Was it that GCC took long to merge the Libtool changes?  Did you ever
ping that?

Nowadays the Libtool sources in GCC track upstream more closely than
they used to do, and updating them should be fairly straightforward.

Thanks,
Ralf
