I asked the newlib maintainer about the possibility of a release and he
had no immediate plans for one. If you can provide a nice argument for
making one, the possibility is always there. I was not completely aware
of all changes that a release would address.
I would prefer to go with a real newlib release. And knowing the newlib
maintainer, a good argument will result in one.
[We do need to get all outstanding RTEMS newlib patches into newlib
before a branch though.]
