Whiteboard

[hrw, Sep 8 2011] gcc-snapshot never was meant to be cross compiler - it is rather self-contained one. Cross build requires libraries/headers inside of gcc-snapshot directory which is not possible (or would require copying all armel-cross-toolchain-base packages for new directory).
[hrw, 16 Sep 2011] dropped 2011.08 as 11.09 got released. Also dropped cross gcc-snapshot as gcc-linaro exists now.
[asac, Sep 28, 2011]: please update status on this one. needs delivery by today. please drop comment for every achievement/blockage right away.
[hrw 28 Sep 2011] removed cross package from overlay PPA.

Headline: Cross Linaro Gcc packages that support multi-architectures are now available at the Toolchain Backports PPA.
Acceptance: Cross Gcc-Linaro packages for 11.09 available at the toolchain backports PPA, daily packages available at the Staging PPA, able to install it at Natty and cross build a package with it.
