 As an old GNU project, we're required to use what the FSF prefers,
which is on savannah., Our
bug tracker is there their too. We've used that for a long time. Yes,
patches in email are harder to track.

  I'm now building up the infrastructure to properly test patches, but
it's not enough to do the next release. All I have these days is my
laptop and a PI B3+. I'd need access to more hardware as some of the
patches effect cross testing, or get others to test the release candidates.

  Much of the problems with cross testing are often obscure timing
problems. It's amazing how sometimes a minor unrelated change changes
the timing and things break... To do a release properly requires
duplicating that level of infrastructure for at least several targets
and several toolchain release, and built on more than one GNU/Linux distro.

 It'll take most of the week to really get a good base setup with
baseline test results, but some of the patches like the DejaGnu
testsuite ones will go in first since they don't effect the toolchain.

  Jacob already added 9 patches to our site. I'm still building cross
compilers since some of his patches effect cross testing. I did add ADA
to my builds, which isn't a normal build default, since I thought some
of the patches for ADA.
