Are you acting as the 2.13 release manager? I would like to know if it
is too late to get this patch in for 2.13? I see that today is the
planned freeze date. The full patch is at
http://sources.redhat.com/ml/binutils-cvs/2002-07/msg00165.html and it
fixes a bug in objcopy & strip on the HP-UX IA64 platform.
I probably wouldn't call this fix critical, mainly because this platform
is not very widespread yet. But without the patch objcopy and strip are
unusable on HP-UX IA64. Perhaps we could put it into the branch for a
future 2.13.1 release if you don't want to risk putting it in to 2.13 at
this late date.
