My observation is as follows.
For the FSF releases, we are obligated to avoid regressions in the
test suites that ship with GCC. If new tests are not contributed,
then we may accidentally break things that were previously fixed.
If it is not worth it to the Ada contributors to create new tests
that can be checked in to GCC to prevent that from happenning,
that is OK with me.
