your claims are as accurate as your bug reports.
* Make gcc-3.3 the default C compiler (Thu, 15 May 2003 20:46:56 +0200)
* Bump sparc back down to 3.2 (Wed, 4 Jun 2003 11:39:53 -0400)

thanks for your offer to bundle a testing package for the toolchain
consisting of binutils, glibc and gcc to check the most critical
packages and applications and to regularily run this test on all
platforms, looking at the results and submitting appropriate patches.
if you don't accept toolchain bugs, stay away from unstable and
testing. if you want to help the projects, help with your time and
