1000 New Year's pledges for 2018 (first Bionic Beaver test rebuilds)

The first test rebuild of Bionic Beaver was started on December 21 2017 for all
architectures, all components (main component and seeded packages finished,
unseeded packages still building).  The number of build time failures
unfortunately is at an all time high around a four digit number.  Time for some
New Year's pledges!

For arm64 and armhf the gcc-7 packages are based on the Linaro 7-2017.11

Results (please also look at the superseded builds) can be found at


Additional build failures for packages in bionic-proposed (not yet in bionic)
can be found at http://qa.ubuntuwire.com/ftbfs/

Please help fixing the build failures.

Another test rebuild using GCC 8 as the default can be found at

The GCC 8 test rebuild uses gcc-defaults and gcc-8 packages from the PPAs


It is NOT planned to make GCC 8 the default compiler for bionic beaver, but
adding ti as a non-default compiler is still being evaluated.

Yet another test rebuild using binutils trunk can be found at

The binutils test rebuild uses binutils from the PPA


It is planned to upload binutils trunk to bionic in late January.

Happy New Year, Matthias
