so... the long wait is over....

I've submitted gcc-4.6.2-1.mga2 to core/release now.

As soon as it's available on the primary mirror I'll invalidate the 
cauldron chroots on the BS to make sure the new gcc is used.

Ater that I'll submit a new glibc and kernel so they are built with
the new toolchain.

So, we now have glibc & the toolchain upgraded:
- glibc is at 2.14.1 (available in cauldron since 2011-10-24)
- binutils 2.22 (available in cauldron since 2011-11-28)
- gcc-4.6.2 (available later today (2011-12-05)

Now, in order to provide a very good Mageia 2, every package should
be rebuilt with the new toolchain/glibc in order to make sure they
still build _and_ work correctly (and flush out any bugs in the

Now this rebuild should be done preferably in BR order when possible,
to rule out bad interaction between packages and be preferably be
fully done by alpha3 or beta1 at the latest so we have time to fix
it properly for Mageia 2.
