I agree that the ongoing process is being done very well! I had not
intended to suggest otherwise. If my note suggested any dissatisfaction,
that was not my intent.

The reason I ask is that there are times when ongoing projects *need* to
be less stable for a period of time so that some extended effort can be
pursued. As a relative newcomer, I'm unable to tell (yet) whether newlib
is currently in that sort of situation.
