Yeah... do we know what base compiler is being used for FC7?
We'll probably have to back-port all the 1.5 stuff to that.
Kinda tough before the 23rd considering that we haven't merged it all
to GCC mainline yet :(
Mark> - Separate libgcj-rpm.
This is suspended pending the core/extras merge.
Mark> - java-gcj-compat
Mark> (Do we also need updates for javap and javah replacements?)
We don't have javap at all, do we? But we do have jcf-dump, which has
not changed during all the 1.5 work.
The new javah that is in Classpath will show up when we merge the
gcj-eclipse branch to trunk.
Mark> Maybe some work can be done to support the JDWP work in libgcj to
Mark> get a little debugging going?
Whatever is on the branch, we'll ship. I don't know what will work or
not before the release, we'll have to ask Keith.
Mark> - OpenJDK
Mark> Still lots missing. Hopefully at Fosdem we will learn a bit more about
Mark> the encumberments and when which parts of the core libraries will be
Mark> liberated fully. But it might be nice to see if javac could be
javac builds fine against classpath (as you know). I'm not sure if
all the needed bits are in libgcj yet, but this is simple to fix if not.
