LLVM May Change How It Does Its Releases
Written by Michael Larabel in LLVM on 15 May 2016 at 08:51 AM EDT. 2 Comments
The upstream LLVM developers have been discussing possible changes about how they manage their releases in hopes of making it more optimal in working with downstream stakeholders of this widely-used, open-source compiler stack.

There's been a rather active mailing list thread the past few days regarding LLVM releases with upstream vs. downstream and the distributions shipping it.

Among the possibilities are changing the release timing and being more predictable about the releases, get involved more downstream managers, improving the bug reporting process, adding more automation to the release/CI/testing process, and more.

If you're at all interested in the LLVM release process or how to better make the LLVM release process work for your needs, see this active mailing list thread.
