Subject: New maintenance team for GCC

We are pleased to announce a new GCC maintainer.  The EGCS Steering
Committee is taking over as the (collective) GNU maintainer of
GCC--and changing its name to the GCC Steering Committee.  The GNU
maintainer of a package has the responsibility for deciding what
changes to install, fixing bugs, and making releases.
The development process for GCC will be essentially the same as has
been used for EGCS, and the EGCS CVS archive will become the GCC CVS
archive.  Day-to-day technical details will be handled by the release
manager (currently Jeff Law) appointed by the steering committee.
We would like to thank Richard Kenner for his work as the GCC
maintainer for the 2.5.x through 2.8.x releases of GCC.
