= System Wide Change: GCC7 =
* Jakub Jelínek <jakub AT redhat DOT com>
Switch GCC in Fedora 26 to 7.x.y, rebuild all packages with it, or
optionally rebuild just some packages with it and rebuild all packages
only in Fedora 27.
== Detailed Description ==
GCC 7 is currently in stage3, will move to stage4 on January 19th, in
prerelease state with only regression bugfixes and documentation fixes
allowed. The release will happen probably in the middle of April. We
are working on scratch gcc rpms and will perform a test mass rebuild.
== Scope ==
All packages should be rebuilt with the new gcc once it hits f26, or,
if there is not enough time for that, just all packages built after
the new gcc hits the buildroots.
* Proposal owners:
Build gcc in f26, rebuild packages that have direct dependencies on
exact gcc version (libtool, llvm, gcc-python-plugin, odb).
* Other developers:
First few days/weeks just voluntary rebuilds using the new system gcc,
if things fail, look at http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-7/porting_to.html
fix bugs in packages or, if there is a gcc bug or suspected gcc bug,
analyze and report.
* Release engineering:
Organize a mass rebuild, either in f26 or in f27
* Policies and guidelines:
No policies need to be changed
