As a result of the C++14 discussion on this list a few months ago, we
relaxed our dependencies policy  to allow upgrading to GCC 5 one
year earlier than planned, to the displeasure of some of our
distributors who now have to build a custom compiler as part of their
WebKit builds. We would prefer not to relax the policy further.
Our current schedule looks like:
* GCC 6 could be required in April 2018 (next Ubuntu LTS release)
* GCC 7 (required for C++17) could be required likely late in 2019
(next Debian stable release)
Is that acceptable for Apple?
