You participated in some of the discussion:

that’s probably what happened.

From Indel, no to both. And in fact, I would be interested in the answer as well, because of the recent interest in where reviewing a patch to the internal builder would be involved.

Not sure what you mean by that.

We don’t, and if I remember correctly, deeming it unsuitable was one of the reasons why we built a system of switching between different toolchains (different versions of GCC for different targets, and now also Clang) on top of what is a single toolchain to CDT/MBS. One of those early decisions that I would want to revisit if we were to start afresh.
