when does https://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-XXX/buildstat.html get updated .. if ever?

Dennis Clarke-2


Just taking note that there has been a release of gcc 8.2 back in July
as well as 7.3 recently etc. I see some results from Rainer Orth on
Solaris SPARC and I know that I have done weeks of work on PPC64 as well
as SPARC but nothing newer ever appears. Is the site now run and in
control entirely by IBM and Red Hat or what ?

No. That's a silly question, but I'll give it a serious answer.

Presumably by "I see some results" you mean on the gcc-testresults
mailing list. The buildstat.html pages aren't auto-generated, so just
sending results to gcc-testresults doesn't affect them at all.

I see from the CVS logs that all recent updates to those pages were
done by Gerald (CC'd) based on results provided by Tom G. Christensen.
Maybe Tom sent them directly to Gerald, or maybe there's some other
process for submitting them.

Hardly silly given what I see in the kernel change logs and on the
various maillists related to gcc.

Right. There is nothing on those pages for anything recent or even for
gcc current prod releases. I do watch Rainer Orth test results and use
them as a comparison.  I really enjoy and smirk at this one :

https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-testresults/2017-05/msg00251.html

Given that Solaris 12 will never exist.

In any case I have arm and powerpc and pa-risc and sparc and other odd
ball things here in my lab and I run builds and tests for weeks and then
use those results to build and test and I compare with what I see in the
supposedly up to date "build test reports" from other people that I
recognize and enjoy their results.

Whatever or whomever the notion "list of successful builds is updated as
new information becomes available" has not been true for at LEAST half a
decade and I have been watching for about two decades.  So I know what I
see is what I see and I also recognize the players that are playing in
the open source game these days.
