So we just need an (reliable) volunteer who checks every bug report in
the Lenny gcc-4.3 whether the same happens with unmodified upstream (or
with gcc-snapshot), and add the result to the bug report? What other
qualifications are necessary? Does one need to understand assembler? Or
is being able to compile debian packages and enough time to burn enough?
