ok thanks - will do.  Incidentally there is a nightly rebase
automatically performed on

    git clone http://floppsie.comp.glam.ac.uk/gm2 combined-repro-gcc

with a number of branches.  git checkout remotes/origin/gm2-master
obtains gcc 12, it runs about 24 hours behind gcc and the gm2 repro.

I'll create a public branch on gcc.gnu.org and keep it up to date.

good idea - as you say fortunate the DCO came along - impeccable timing
:-).  I will use a DCO on all commits to be safe,
