There have been issues now and in the past about bootstrapping Go gc from gccgo being broken #40855, #30771.
Documentation at https://golang.org/doc/install/source#bootstrapFromGccgo suggests that bootstraping from gccgo is supported.
If this is the case I suggest we add a builder for that. To not be blocked on ressources I would assume a build only linux/amd64 builder would suffice to catch bootstrap issues.

The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
Given we say it is supported, I agree we should aim to have a test or a builder to confirm that it hasn't regressed.
We have some make.bash-only builders (e.g., search for CompileOnly in x/build/dashboard), so this can probably be arranged in a similar way.
Which version of Gccgo should be tested, and how often should we aim to update it?

Sorry, something went wrong.
gccgo is released as part of GCC, and a new major version of GCC is released once a year.
