certainly not by you - and probably others on this list. but my arguments do

velocity of release - at a minimum we should have test versions for GCC 7 and
or 8 already for ALL arches and ALL targets.

this is a false assumption - no one volunteers because a maintainer is already
in place - thats like applying for a job that is filled - but if he vacated and
corinna or whatever posted an "opening" - i am confident it would be filled
