It's aj@suse.de - I don't think that aj@suse.com would work.

He hopes ;-) - there's still a lot to do.  And if you don't know if
you have a bug in the compiler, linker or your just written routines,
it's not easy.:-(

I see the following problems:
- get glibc 2.2 running without symbol versioning
- fix binutils so that symbol versioning works
- get support for MIPS/Linux into gdb/gcc/binutils so that those work
  without additional fixes

I'm working on the first part now - and will try to report bugs in
binutils so that one day glibc even works with symbol versioning
(without symbol versioning you loose compatibility - for ever).

As soon as I have the dynamic linker running and can execute program
I'll make an announcement so that other can help and test.
