For this release cycle, I'm recommending that people use phabricator for
nominating patches for the stable branch. This is not required, you can
still nominate patches via email, but using phabricator will make my
job much easier and make it less likely that your patch gets forgotten.
Here is how to nominate patches via phabricator:
1. Go to http://reviews.llvm.org/rL12345 where 12345 is the revision
number of the commit you want to merge into the stable branch.
2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select "Add Auditors" from the
drop down box labeled "Action"
3. A text box labeled "Add Auditors" will appear below the drop down
box. Add these people/groups as auditors:
b) Relevant mailing list (e.g. 'llvm-commits' or 'cfe-commits')
c) Release Manager: 'tstellarAMD'
d) Code Owner
4. In the comments field, enter the reason why this patch should be
Let me know if you have any questions about this.
