The GNU Toolchain project leadership supports the proposal[1] to move the
services for the GNU Toolchain to the Linux Foundation IT under the auspices of
the Toolchain Infrastructure project (GTI) with fiscal sponsorship from the
OpenSSF and other major donors.

This support includes empowering the GTI Technical Advisory Committee to vote
on issues surrounding key infrastructure requirements. Additionally we welcome
any other projects at that wish to join the effort.

The GNU Toolchain is the cornerstone of the GNU/Linux ecosystem, the Cloud, and
embedded environments. Open Source security best practices and mandates from
governments and industry on software supply chain security require a strong
effort to ensure compliance with policies, maintain the trust of the
distributors of software built by the GNU Toolchain, and the continued vitality
of the GNU Toolchain projects.

We believe that utilizing the experience and infrastructure of the LF IT team
that already is used by the Linux kernel community will provide the most
effective solution and best experience for the GNU Toolchain developer

As with, GTI has requested from the Linux Foundation IT that all
software implementing the infrastructure for the GNU Toolchain projects must
be Free Software.  If Free Software versions of necessary security tools are
missing, GTI will work with Free Software supporters to develop Free Software
