Dunno.  Ask Fabrice.

I maintain my own mercurial repository, which I converted from the CVS 
repository back on October 7th (at which point CVS hadn't been touched since 
February).  I've applied a couple dozen patches to it since then, and have at 
least a dozen more todo items I should make time for.

However, on October 16th and 18th, Fabrice showed up after a long absence and 
committed some stuff to the old CVS repository (in both cases, variants of 
patches I think I'd already committed to my repository, the -E thing and 
stuff from Dave Dodge's patch list), which took most of the wind out of my 

This put my mercurial repository in an awkward position, as a clearly 
unofficial branch.  If Fabrice showed any desire to take an interest in the 
project again, I wasn't going to stand in his way, so I stopped actively 
working on my version at that point.  Went on to focus on other things 
(toybox and firmware linux, mostly).

However, it's now been about 4 months since Fabrice's last commit, and he 
hasn't even tried to catch up with my tree.  I'm still not puting much time 
into it, and I really haven't properly come up to speed on most of the tcc 
internals, but I've been bookmarking various tcc patches as I find them and 
I'm slowly working my way through the backlog.

So all I can say right now is I maintain _my_ version.  I merge patches and 
try to respond to bug reports.

I'm not planning a release (unless somebody really wants one), I have several 
other demands on my time, I really don't understand the internals of the 
program half as well as I'd like, and I haven't currently got the three solid 
months to dedicate to coming up to speed to my satisfaction.

I doubt this answers your question.  I think I'm maintaining a fork.

Sure, I'm all ears.

Do you have a code snippet that can reproduce the problem?

Again, got something I can reproduce?  (If I can reproduce it, I'll at least 
_try_ to fix it, if somebody reminds me often enough. :)

A couple weeks back somebody sent me a program that segfaults tcc during the 
compile.  Looking into that is on my short-term todo list (at
