14 If I'm nervous enough about a change that I would put it in a new eclass, it's
15 because I need more test coverage. I won't get any in the toolchain overlay
16 as I'm pretty sure I can count the number of people using it on one hand. What
17 I'm probably going to do is add a toolchain-next eclass to the tree and have
18 masked versions use it, moving changes into the real eclass when they get
19 unmasked.
21 But back on topic, Benda I'd be happy to review patches or help you out in the
22 areas I cover. For now I think it would be best to keep doing what you're
23 doing and we'll see how it goes. We definitely need more help.
