Squeeze is feasible. We have proposed a (quite ambitious) freeze in December
2009, and some developers have noted that their planned changes wouldn't be
possible in this time frame. So, to find out when releasing would work for
most people, it would be great if you could answer the following questions:
Do you have any big changes planned? How much time would they take, and
what consequences are there for the rest of the project?
How many "big" transitions will the upcoming changes cause? When should those
happen? Can we do something to make them easier?
binutils for mips currently shows some regressions (#519006) and non-working PIE
support (#532821). The regression is addressed upstream, the non-working PIE
support needs a test case and forwarding upstream.
