Gcc-4.7.3 bugfix was just released, and seeing as how 4.8.0 apparently is having some problems, I was wondering if we were going to get a bump to 4.7.3

Usually yes, but probably not on same day :-)

Every time there's a zero-day bump request, a kitten dies.

There has been an update... :
Whoever opens the zero-day bump request box will determine the status of a kitten !

Apparently there has been a slight misunderstanding. :roll:

I wasn't requesting a "bump request" on the first day of a new release- to do so would of course be ridiculous.

Perhaps I didn't word my question clearly enough (Sorry- I do tend to wander into compound sentence structures).

Anyway, to clarify, I was merely inquiring if anyone was aware of any future plans to even bump to 4.7.3 on Gentoo before 3.8.0 hit ~Arch.

Well, let's have a look at previous major gcc versions still in portage:

sys-devel/gcc-4.2.4
sys-devel/gcc-4.3.6
sys-devel/gcc-4.4.7
sys-devel/gcc-4.5.4
sys-devel/gcc-4.6.3

Given that, it's pretty safe to assume that nothing points toward gcc:4.7 stopping at .2 :)

Furthermore, given that 4.8 was *just* released, we are months rather than weeks away from gcc:4.8 hitting ~arch.

It is easy to bump yourself to gcc-4.7.3 using this recipe
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=465622

I can confirm it works using ~amd64 arch!
