Was this intended for me? If so, I don't remember seeing it before.
Please remember that I've fallen of the -devel list and can't get back
Anyway, the deal for gdb and binutils is that I only have enough time
to track H.J. Lu's versions. Since he hasn't released public versions
of gdb-4.16 and binutils-2.7 yet, neither have I. However, if anyone
out there is capable of handling these packages and devote more time
to them, I will gladly give them up. They have actually been up for
adoption for some time, I just haven't publicized it much.
