The "llgo" Go front-end to LLVM could soon be accepted as a new sub-project. This Go front-end is written in the Go language itself.

Going on for a while has been llgo as a Go front-end for LLVM written in Go. This LLVM Go compiler front-end works on 64-bit Linux and works for most code-bases and now the developers are willing to relicense it under the LLVM license and move it upstream as an official LLVM sub-project.

Those interested in LLVM for Go can find the details via this mailing list thread where there's been generally favorable feedback thus far.
