Subject[PATCH 0/2] gcc-plugins: Explicitly document purpose and deprecation schedule
Date
Hi,

GCC plugins should only exist when some compiler feature needs to be
proven but does not exist in either GCC nor Clang. For example, if a
desired feature is already in Clang, it should be added to GCC upstream.
Document this explicitly.

I'll put this in -next unless there are objections. :)

Thanks!

-Kees
