  Hello GMP authors,
  I'd like to draw your attention to Andreas' patch
  for building GMP on the 64-bit S390 (s390x):
  I just built 5.0.2 for Debian -- including this patch -- and, as
  reported, all tests pass on both s390 and s390x.
  Would you consider adding this to the next release?
As Marc has already pointed out, we have tried to work on this
repeatedly, and the issue has not been dropped by us.

None of the GMP developers have s390x access, and qemu-system-s390x
cannot be persuaded to work with any (public) documentation.  If the
people that care about s390x GMP support do not reply to our simple
questions, then it is almost guaranteed that no progress will be made.

I'm afraid I will not take any more initiatives about s390x since it
seems to simply waste my time.
