A first test rebuild of Xenial Xerus was started last year for all
architectures, all components.

Results (please also look at the superseded builds) can be found at

For arm64 and armhf the gcc-5 packages are based on the Linaro 5-2015.12

Additional build failures for packages in xenial-proposed (not yet in xenial)
can be found at

Please help fixing the build failures.


PS: A second test rebuild (using a GCC 5 defaulting to -fPIE -Wl-z,now) was done 
on amd64, ppc64el and s390x, in preparation to turn on these flags on these 
architectures. Found at

PS: A third test rebuild (using a snapshot of GCC 6) is built in
preparation of the move to GCC 6 in 16.10. This can be found at

The corresponding compiler packages are in the PPA

... just in case you want to make packages ready for GCC 6.
