No, that's not correct. They're being checked in to the GCC 3.1 tree;
GNAT is not a candidate for 3.0.2, unless I'm badly mistaken. So we
won't be seeing Ada in GCC tarballs for a while yet (next April or so).
I'm also very reluctant to package Ada at the same time as the main GCC
snapshots because it requires Ada installed to build. Others might
argue with me on that point, though.
