About a year ago we cheered something like: WE DID IT!!!
Today I am very excited to finally have released GNU Mes 0.24 which supports
the Full Source Bootstrap. So we did what? As Carl Dong once so eloquently
The holy grail of bootstrappability will be connecting mes to hex0
which is exactly what this patch series brings.
Starting from an 357-byte hex0 provided by the new bootstrap-seeds package,
the new stage0-posix package builds hex0, kaem, hex1, catm, hex2, M0, cc_x86,
M1, M2, get_machine, (mescc-tools), and M2-Planet. The 0.24 release of Mes
can now be built using this M2-Planet.
This means that the bootstrap binaries that were added as part of the Reduced
Binary Seed Bootstrap (see
%bootstrap-mescc-tools, %bootstrap-mes, are now removed again.
Jan (janneke) Nieuwenhuizen (8):
