The plan looks fine. Thanks for it
unfortunately I see unexpected segfault on the testsuite
0:00:03 load avg: 1.65 [ 24/404] test_argparse -- test_applesingle skipped
0:00:11 load avg: 1.58 [ 25/404] test_array
0:00:12 load avg: 1.58 [ 26/404] test_ascii_formatd
make: *** [Makefile:878: test] Segmentation fault (core dumped)
for both 2.7.17 and your original 2.7.16.
as I saw other segfault on other programs recently
I assume that one of compiler/binutils/cygwin has some problem.
3.8.2 seems to stall later in the test, so it is another issue.
