            Bug ID: 85622
           Summary: gcc-8.1.0/NEWS says it's not released yet
           Product: gcc
           Version: 8.0
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: other
          Assignee: unassigned at gcc dot gnu.org
          Reporter: hp at gcc dot gnu.org
  Target Milestone: ---

In the gcc-8.1.0 tarball, the file NEWS contains, near the top:
"As of this time no releases of GCC 8 have yet been made."
further down:
"Disclaimer: GCC 8 has not been released yet, so this document is a
work-in-progress."
The NEWS file says it's autogenerated and those two lines come from paragraphs
that indicate that they're generated from <http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-8/index.html>
and <http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-8/changes.html> respectively.

Not sure how to fix that accurately, but perhaps by adjusting the
release-checklist (wherever that lives) so "update the index.html and
gcc-N/changes.html web pages" come before "execute the release script"?
