Gerald Pfeifer - Oct. 31, 2012, 1:30 a.m.
When trying to address some issues with this page, I realized it is
not linked, and hasn't for probably a decade or more.  And the contents
is not up-to-date either or more or less covered elsewhere.  Sooo, gone
it is.

-<h1>libgcj-2.95 Platform Test Strategy</h1>
-
-<h2> Platform Coverage </h2>
-<p>One of the critical steps in making releases is platform testing.  
-Since there is no prior release of libgcj to perform regressions against,
-we want to compare results against a known building platform, i686-pc-linux-gnu.</p>
-
-<p>We would like to get the widest coverage possible, so please check the
-following chart for platforms that have already been covered if you have
-a choice of platforms to build upon.</p>
-
-<p>Please send build/test results (in the format described below) to
-<a href="mailto:java@gcc.gnu.org">java@gcc.gnu.org</a>.
-<br />You may also address questions to 
-<a href="mailto:java@gcc.gnu.org">java-discuss</a>
-or to indicate that you would like to help in another way with some phase of the
-libgcj-2.95 release cycle.</p>
-
-<h2>How to run the tests</h2>
-
-<p>  First, you must have built and installed
-<a href="libgcj.html">libgcj</a> using the
-<b>libgcj-2_95-branch</b> branch of the source.</p>
-<p>This can be done by including the <tt>'-rlibgcj-2_95-branch'</tt>
-flag on the <tt>'cvs co'</tt> command line or downloading the
-<a href="ftp://sources.redhat.com/pub/java/snapshots/">snapshot</a>
-and then following the
-<a href="libgcj.html">
-build instructions on the libgcj page</a>.
-(For those developers downloading via snapshots, please note that
-the snapshoting process has been temporarily changed to use the
-<tt>libgcj-2_95-branch</tt> rather than the main trunk.
-Please be aware of this if you are looking for patches that get applied
-to the main source tree but not to the branch).</p>
-
-<p>  Next, go to the <tt>libjava/testsuite</tt> directory of your build
-tree and run <tt>'make check'</tt> after doing the following:</p>
-<ul>
-  <li>In order to more fully exercise libgcj, it is highly recommended to
-  include the 
-  <a href="http://sources.redhat.com/mauve/">Mauve testsuite</a>
-  in the test run.
-  <br />The Mauve tests are available for
-  <a href="http://sources.redhat.com/mauve/download.html">download</a>
-  via both anonymous cvs and snapshots.</li>
-  <li>The env variable MAUVEDIR must be set to the top of the Mauve source tree.</li>
-  <li>The testsuites rely on the dejagnu package.  You can download the
-  <a href="ftp://gcc.gnu.org/pub/gcc/infrastructure/dejagnu-19990614.tar.gz">current dejagnu snapshot</a>
-  from gcc.  Please note that some earlier versions of dejagnu are missing a
-  patch that's in recent snapshots.  Please make sure you have tried
-  running the testsuites with the current snapshot of dejagnu before reporting
-  any testsuite platform problems.  There is a short entry in the
-  <a href="http://gcc.gnu.org/faq.html#dejagnu">gcc FAQ</a>
-  if you would like more information about this issue.</li> 
-</ul>
-
-<h2>Testing notes</h2>
-<ul>
-  <li>By default, tests that first compile to bytecode use an installed
-  <tt>javac</tt> program.  Set the environment variable <tt>JAVAC</tt>
-  to <tt>'gcj -C'</tt> to use the installed gcj for this purpose.</li> 
-  <li> It is highly recommended that you not override the default libgcj
-  configuration option for building with dynamic libraries.  This is to avoid
-  having to explicitly specify some libgcj object modules on the link line
-  to get certain java/net Mauve tests to execute.</li> 
-  <li>An gcc patch affecting <tt>gcj</tt> was made on 24-June-99.
-  Developers using cvs to access the gcc source should update an rebuild
-  to get that fix.  The next
-  <a href="ftp://gcc.gnu.org/pub/gcc/snapshots/index.html">gcc snapshot</a>
-  with this patch will not be available until 30-June-99.  At that point
-  developers without cvs access should download that patch.  In the
-  meantime, the problem can be avoided in test runs with the following
-  <tt>RUNTESTFLAGS</tt> options:
-  <pre>
-   make RUNTESTFLAGS='GCJ_UNDER_TEST="gcj -L/x2/java/build/i686-pc-linux-gnu/libjava"' \
-   JAVAC='gcj -C -I/x2/java/build/i686-pc-linux-gnu/libjava/libgcj.zip' \
-   GCJ_UNDER_TEST='gcj -L/x2/java/install/lib' check
-  </pre>
-  i.e. GCJ_UNDER_TEST needs a -L pointing to the libjava build directory and
-  JAVAC needs a -I pointing to the zip file.</li> 
-</ul>
-
-<h2>Current Platform Testing Status</h2>
-<p>This is the current results for the platforms reported to us.  Please use

-<p>A list of deviations from the 
-<a href="libgcj-sum.txt">posted baseline list of test results</a>
-should follow any entry you submit.
-A context diff is fine if it is clear what tests are failing;
-we'd rather not have to deal with a complete output listing unless
-it is necessary to comprehend the deviations.</p>
-<p>Note that if you are not using POSIX threads, some tests will not complete  
-successfully, so differences should be expected.</p>
- 
-<p>Please send build/test results to
-<a href="mailto:java@gcc.gnu.org">java@gcc.gnu.org</a>
-in this format.</p>

-<h2>Submitting Patches</h2>
-<p><tt>libgcj-2.95</tt> should be considered frozen except for low-risk
-porting changes that increase coverage to new target platforms
-(i.e. those changes that would not affect other platforms).
-High priority changes will be determined and considered on a case
-by case basis.  All other changes will only go into the main trunk
-and not the libgcj-2_95-branch.</p>
-
-<p>The mailing list, 
-<a href="mailto:java-patches@gcc.gnu.org">java-patches@gcc.gnu.org</a>
-has been created for patch submissions.
-We plan to use this list just as gcc uses the gcc-patches list: all
-patches will be sent to the list.
-If you have a patch you want considered, please send it there along
-with an explanation and a ChangeLog entry.</p>
-
-<p>Developers with checkin-after-approval access should also send patches
-to this list, and then check them in after approval is given.
-Developers with direct checkin access should also send patches to this
-list; this can happen concurrently with the checkin.</p>
-
-<p>Some discussion will probably take place on this list (just as with
-gcc-patches).  The 
-<a href="/java/">web page has subscription info</a>,
-as well as a
-<a href="http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/java-patches/">
-link to the archives</a>.</p>
-
-<p>The
-<a href="mailto:java-patches@gcc.gnu.org">java-patches</a>
-mailing list is for patches to the libgcj code
-(libjava, boehm-gc, zlib, etc) code only.
-In particular, compiler patches still have to go through gcc, so
-please don't send them to java-patches.</p>
