[OT] off topic
The story is, we will still be under version 3.00 of gcc.
The same kind of story that is happening with Xfree86 since january.
We require people with some drive.
Release the thing, we will make it work. Is that bold enough.
Thing that Red Hat is doing now, do now release unofficial release
before it has receive benediction of the pope. But the version
number tell it all. ex.: 220.127.116.11.90, means you are very, very slow.
ex.: before gcc 3.3, we were 2.2.96
I find very funny people, complaining about gcc 2.96.
<bold> It was the first gcc doing sensible thing with template</bold>
That is compliance with ISO/IEC 14882, many years after the
official release of the standard.
Where were you, when the avalanche of patches to fix non
compliant application were flying around.
The thing(gcc 2.96) must work, I still have Netscape which require the
libstdc++ compile with 2.96. and my system is rawhide
where the current version is gcc 3.3
Another point, or another fight.
With a distribution release, never upgrade thing like gcc, binutils.
From an administrative point of view, that is a big no no.
Redhat have made that point very clear.
If new functionality is require, it must be backport.
And of discussion. Exception for people with lot of money and time,
to prove that every thing work with this new set of tool.
