I'm excited to be at the helm, but I don't have any interest in making
any big changes at first besides revisiting what is in patchworks
(https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/crosstool-ng/list/). I will be
sending out replies to these emails/patches as I go through them to
apply them to the main repository. Stay tuned...
There are a few updates to the wiki to be made, among other administrivia.
If you have changes to crosstool-ng to submit or any issues, the
process is the same, except please send emails:
TO: crossgcc at sourceware dot org
CC: bryanhundven at gmail dot com
and I will respond as soon as possible. Documentation will reflect
this process update soon.
It might take me a little bit to ramp up to actually committing
changes to the repository as I get my environment setup properly. But
it shouldn't take too long.
Many thanks go to Yann E. MORIN, and past and future contributors.
