Re: Bug#731069: gcc-defaults: Please resume considering to change using unified version of gcc

Control: tags -1 + moreinfo

Afaics, the situation didn't change. There is nobody committing to work on the
toolchain for these architectures.  At least for release architectures the
alternative is to drop the port unless somebody wants to maintain the toolchain
for this port.  This is the current status, please correct me if I'm wrong.

 - alpha, no feedback, CCing Michael Cree.
 - hppa, no feedback, CCing John David Anglin
 - ia64, no feedback, likely to be removed.
 - powerpc, found some feedback from the porters, but unrelated to
   toolchain issues, see
 - powerpcspe, no feedback, CCing Roland Stigge.
 - ppc64, no feedback
 - s390x, pending upload
 - sparc, no feedback
 - sh4, no feedback, doesn't build, CCing Nobuhiro Iwamatsu

This is a decision for the porters.  If there are no active porters, there
shouldn't be a port.
