Should there be a GIT tag named "Version_2_6_12"?

Greetings!  The GCL team is happy to announce the release of version
2.6.12, the latest achievement in the 'stable' (as opposed to
'development') series.  Please see http://www.gnu.org/software/gcl for
downloading information.

This release was largely motivated to accelerate closure construction
and compiler hash table performance for ACL2(h).  Along the way,
support was added for ACL2 static-consing, making GCL at present one
of two lisps offering this optimization for very large and heavy jobs.
This release also features a TAGS target in make, a variety of
compiler speed improvements, an overhaul and standardization of the
error, conditions, and restart systems, protection of system and fork
from SIGPROF, and getc/putc from SIGINT, faster l2 list functions and
nani/address, proper handling of missing objdump and generic TMP
environment variables, processing of mismatched fast-link calls slowly
without error, ppc64le and aarch64 fixes, support for the
si::*link-list* fast-linking diagnostic, more robust segfault
trapping, and full pathname fixes to the unradomize/re-exec

Take care,
