First, let me ask if there’s a page that documents the testing process in full. If there is, just give me a link to that and save yourself the time of answering this. (I did Google it, all I found was docs on writing tests for LLVM.)
Sorry if this is way off, but I have no idea what to download and unpack to start testing. I know it’s stuff from here: http://llvm.org/pre-releases/3.3/rc1/.
I’ve built LLVM and Clang before, for my own use. IIRC, I put clang in llvm/tools/ and just ran ./configure and make. So what I need to know is: which of those files do I need, and which llvm subdirectories the go in?
And I do this for both 3.3rc1 and 3.2, then run:
utils/release/test-release.sh --release 3.2 in the llvm 3.2 directory, and
utils/release/test-release.sh --release 3.3 --rc 1 in the llvm 3.3rc1 directory, right?
For clarification, by llvm 3.x directory, I mean the extracted llvm 3.x tarball and all the 3.x sub-tools extracted in their respective subdirectories.
Then what after that?
Sorry for all the extra clarification. This is the first testing I’ve ever done. I really like LLVM and accompanying tools. I’d like to become more involved in the LLVM project, but I don’t think I have the necessary skills yet.
