I've now gone through
and raised severity as follows:
* most bugs: escalated to serious with #994388 as justification
* bugs only affecting example files: left as non-RC
* ypserv #983138, pkg-config #992620: left as non-RC for now, with a
comment that I am unsure whether they should be RC or not
(better-informed opinions welcome)
I haven't investigated whether the unreproducibility in gcc-arm-none-eabi,
gcc-mingw-w64 and gcc-sh-elf is serious: these packages are too large for
the reproducible-builds infrastructure to run diffoscope successfully.
It would be great if someone with the necessary computational resources
to inspect these packages, or someone with better knowledge of gcc
internals, could do so. I suspect they will be in the same situation as
gcc-riscv64-unknown-elf and gcc-xtensa-lx106 (RC-buggy).
