There is also multi-arching all the targets. I should probably note
that even if I didn't propose this I would have probably scrubbed the

Ah, sooner than that :-) A best case senario puts the schedule at:
announce branch 2002-01-16; branch 2002-01-23; release 2002-02-06.
People have often said that GDB should be released more often. Looks
like it might happen.
