I made the call that it would be less annoying to live with bugs from
gcc-3.1 compilations then it would be to have to go through another
ABI bump in 6 weeks (The rest of Debian will apparently all move to
gcc-3.1.1 when it's released). I certainly still beleive this to be
The biggest problem with an ABI bump is that the workload essentially
rests on one or two people to guide through the process. Bug fixing
can be distributed over a number of people. Also, we are only out of
sync bwith the rest of Debian for a couple months this way. If we had
to organize another bump, I can see us not moving until this Fall
(time | emotional energy | etc).
Any problem we encounter in the Hurd with gcc-3.1 is one we'd have to
solve anyway, we may as well do it now.
