Just a short update on things:
Toolchain: I now have gcc-4.2 snapshots in the tree. Don't use them unless you feel like actually fixing any problems you run into. They are not supported yet, and are just there as a convienence to those that wish to play around with them. In other news, GCC-4.1 is coming along nicely, but I could definately use some help cleaning up all of the porting bugs that remain. Just check out the blockers for bug #117482.
x86: On the x86 front, we definately need more arch testers. So if you are interested, contact me, tsunam, or hparker and let us know. I think the team has helped improve "x86", and I'd really like to see things improve even more, but we need more people for that.
Also, if you want to help out by maintaining some packages, check out the Staffing Needs page. There are contact addresses on there for whomever is asking for help. Also, you can check the bugs assigned to email@example.com. You can send me an email if you think you can help out by maintaining any of those packages, and either I'll help you out, or try to find someone else that would be more appropriate.
