Didn't Eli already approve it?  

If so, do you have FSF paperwork filed (I'm not a maintainer, so I won't
hazard a guess if this is ok to be posted by another committer).

OTOH, if you see yourself doing more GDB hacking, and do not have
paperwork, best to get that underway.  Sometimes there can be long
delays in that process.
