Michael Chastain has been doing a great job lately documenting errors
in the GDB and in the GDB test suite via the GNATS database on
Thank you, Michael!
Michael is only doing part one of the job, though. I was just wondering
if anyone was looking at these bugs and if anyone was interested in
maybe knocking off a few.
I'm seeing quite a bit of activity with gcc volunteers now that gcc 3.0
has branched. There has been a massive upswing in people requesting

This is commendable. Wouldn't it be nice if GDB volunteers would do
If anyone here is interested in helping out, and you don't already have
a GNATS account (everybody in GDB/maintainers should have one), I'll be

It may take a day or two to get an account but I'll try to process these

have a GNATS account. Email me if you don't know your password or if
you don't have an GNATS account and you do have CVS checkin authority
