Blah Terry, TOTALLY 110% INCORRECT. The situation was the same as our FreeBSD 3.x users that still post PR's against RELENG_3 and want us to fix things. Even where there was complete patches against 2.94.3 available; the issue for the GCC people was one of not willing to spend the effort to re-test on all platforms. Same reason we don't upgrade RELENG_3 to the latest openssl (or any other lib) -- who knows what else would break that depended on version that is there now. > The inability to get patches into 2.95 is totally unrelated > to the fact that it was an older GCC, and completely related > to the fact that the patches were not submitted in accordance > with the GCC maintainer's guidelines, WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, WRONG !!!
