I've checked in the attached patch to announce the cleanup project that 
Tobias and I have been working on over the last several months in the 
GCC 12 release notes.  I also updated the page for TS29113 on the GCC 
wiki to reflect that anything that still doesn't work ought to be 
considered a bug, not just incomplete work-in-progress.

I know that the conformance sections of the Fortran manual are badly in 
need of updating too (not just for TS29113, but the various versions of 
the standard).  That's in my queue to fix up, but I'm likely going to 
need assistance from the gfortran maintainers to get the details right.  :-S

Thanks for the work that the both of you put into this, and also thanks
for putting this into the release notes.  I was about to suggest you do
so, so you beat me to it :-)
