What's Left for 4.12 Branching?

What do we think is left to do before we can branch 4.12?

Code Issues
>From my perspective, I think my POSIX API goals have
been met with the posix_devctl and SHM patches. There
may be patches but that's normal.

Any other code issues?

Tool Issues
A new newlib snapshot would be welcomed and I thought
a binutils release was coming up.

AFAIK All looks for C/C++, most look good for Fortran.
I don't know about Ada.

I have a patch to drop soft-float for rtems i386 gcc. This
let's Fortran build.

I have a similar patch which drops SH multilibs where
there is only single precision FP. This solves the Fortran
build issue and a long standing Ada build issue.

m68k Fortran causes an ICE on soft float. We need soft-float
on that target so this is a wait and track.

Any other tool issues?

Documentation Issues
My feeling is that documentation issues are the long pole
at this point. Chris has been working hard on this but there
is still stuff to do.  Chris.. care to share with us what your
goals are and what we can do to help?

I need to add a posix_devctl() page and I expect Gedare
has some documentation to add on his work.

Any other documentation issues?

Anything I missed?
