Patches should be posted to email@example.com - for large
drop-ins (sub-)tarballs are prefered. I suppose one way would be
to merge GDC to a branch in the GCC SVN repository first. Note
that gcc-patches has a size limit (not sure how large it was though),
hosting files somewhere and providing links would be another
way of providing them.
