Thanks for the heads up, François (and thanks for Paolo for the
reference ;-).

Based on your mail, how about the following change to the web page?
Should (also) others be listed as branch maintainers?  Is there a
specific way patches to that branch should be labled in the subject,
similar to other branches?  Any other changes?

Hello

     Thanks for the feedback. By the time I finally had access to the 
CVS repo but I definitely prefer that you take care of it.

     Here is what I compiled from your proposal, Paolo's feedback and my 
initial blurb:

     This branch carries all the C++ Runtime Library (libstdc++-v3) 
patches that break its abi. It will be merged into the trunk as soon as 
the decision to move to abi version 7 will have been taken. It is 
maintained by François Dumont and the official libstdc++-v3 maintainers 
Paolo Carlini, Benjamin Kosnik and Jonathan Wakely.

     I prefer to avoid the term "C++ ABI" because it might looks like 
the C++ compiler ABI which is something different.

Regards

François Dumont

Hi

     I hope you won't mind but I finally took care of it applying the 
following patch:

patches

     Don't hesitate to tell me if you see anything wrong in the way I 
handle it.

François
