Sadly, we are not there yet.  The gcc/glibc build is still not done.

The full source bootstrap is "almost ready" and is waiting for a GNU Mes
release.  It was wating for an M2-Planet release but that happened last
week!  I'm not sure about a time frame here though.  A week, hmm?

I haven't really caught-up here and am still wondering here about things

   ("foo-for-build" ,foo)
   ("patch-bar" ,(search-patch ...))

but that's prolly addressed.  I'll look into this.
