Description Denilson Sá Maia 2011-10-05 17:33:07 UTC
By looking at the colorgcc homepage: http://schlueters.de/colorgcc.html We can see it's now also hosted at GitHub: https://github.com/johannes/colorgcc This github repo seems active, with patches being applied this year (2011), as well as a few forks (one of them applied patches from Ubuntu, which added g77 and gcj). Anyway, my suggestion is to get the Gentoo patches (which are from 2003/2009) and push them upstream. The Gentoo solution seems great because it allows colorgcc to work with whatever name the gcc compiler has. In my case, Gentoo colorgcc works with "avr-gcc" directly out of the box, which is impossible (or more difficult) with vanilla version, because that name is not officially supported. By the way, I believe upstream would prefer bug 234166 fixed before accepting the patches.

It is rather unmaintained in Gentoo, care to help?

(In reply to comment #1) > It is rather unmaintained in Gentoo, care to help? Just submitted a patch to that other bug. Anything else that I might help? (bear with me as I'm not familiar with Perl code)
