I hesitate to say this, as the funnest work, is work that you want to do.  I would ask, what would you like to do next?  Other work, if you wanted to try your hand at something, would be to read through the PRs on the gcc web site, and find one that you’d like to fix and fix it.

These are the official bugs reported  against gcc by users of gcc.  They all go into the Problem Report database (PR for short).  The main page it at:


and that is a front end for the database.  The database is composed of entries that are numbered, and to get at an entry, in case you want to see one:


will show you entry 17234, which we refer to as PR17234.  This one details a bug with if conversion.  One can search the database for what ever one would like.

Your plans sound wonderful, thanks for all the work.  As you find patches to fix things, be sure to send them in.
