Github says https://github.com/mickael-guene was last active November 30th (commiting stuff to his cortex-m simulator fork), so he's still around... I'm tempted to try to shoehorn the gcc and binutils here into musl-cross-make and see what happens. But I've already _got_ a cortex-m targeted toolchain that... can't build musl. Because of the assembly stuff. So I should probably poke at that first. > Rich Rob
