Yes that's true. I was also asking about is there a TODO list for the current release
of gcc 9 as Jonathan mentioned this work is a stage 1 fix or feature and should wait
until gcc 10 stage 1 so was wondering what work is needed in the current stage 3.

Sorry for the confusion with the previous email and hopefully this makes more sense,
