Looking at the gcc test results for the past few years it looks like
efforts have fallen off a cliff. Certainly I have lost a lot of
interest. I still have reasons to work with Apache and OpenSSL and a

There was considerable activity in the previous five years and I know
that I have been submitting results as far back as 1999 or so. However
the last five years clearly point the direction.
