Stage3 has now officially ended after lasting a bit more than two months.
This means that GCC trunk is now in release branch mode, thus only
regression fixes and documentation changes are allowed now.

Upcoming GCC 4.8 has stabilized itself over the holidays and I am
aware of whole-distro rebuilds having taken place (x86_64, i586,
s390x and ppc).  There are a high number of release critical bugs
around, several for less common (but primary or secondary) targets.
Target maintainers - please help confirming and analyzing bugs for
your targets.

GCC trunk will remain in release branch mode until the release managers
consider it fit for creating a first release candidate at which point
it will branch and development will open for the next stage1.  History
tells us this will happen not earlier than two months from now.
