At last it's public! - CodeSourcery is (mostly) a part of Mentor
We don't expect much immediate impact on GDB hacking; the Sourcerers are
all still here, still work on the same projects, continue to have
CodeSourcery addresses, and so forth.
Aficionados of assignment will have noticed that the FSF's copyright
list magically grew a Mentor blanket assignment a few days ago. :-)
For me, this is a case of things coming full circle; in the 1990s,
Mentor standardized on G++ as the way to deliver their design apps on
different flavors of Unix workstations, whose proprietary C++ compilers
each accepted a different version of the language. Mentor put quite a
bit of money into getting G++ working well (in the form of support
contracts with Cygnus), thus playing a role in evolving G++ from
Tiemann's hack :-) to the compiler that so many projects depend on today.
