[Tinycc-devel] mailing list broken?

   Something seems to be broken in the mailing list. I saw my previous 
   posts disappearing from the archive, which is almost empty, and  I don't 
   receive any other messages from the list except mines (everybody already 
   in christmas holidays). Something bad at nongnu.org ?

Yes, the December html archive has been broken for about a week now.
etc.  They are regenerated each day, but remain broken.

The raw text archive seems fine

Perhaps my posting of the 12th, with an indented embedded message,
confuses the formatter?  Random guess.

In other news, I ran the gcc-3.2.1 "make check-gcc" testsuite against
tcc yesterday, and postprocessed the result into something more easily
readable.  The test went fairly well.  Much of the result was unhelpful,
but some of it was real, eg,

All compilers have quirks.  Perhaps some fodder for a todo list.

For tcc to masquerade as gcc, it was sufficient to wrap tcc in a
script which did only two things -- removed the gcc "-w" warning flag,
and moved any "-o mumble" to the front of the argument list.  So
compatibility with gcc command line arguments is improving nicely.
