The release branch was recently created from trunk at r308441 and the
trunk version was subsequently incremented to 6.0.0.
Release blockers are tracked by
https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33849 Please mark any bugs, old
or new, that you think need to be fixed before the release as blocking
Please help out with the release by notifying me of any bugs, commits,
or other issues you think might be relevant; ideally by marking them
as blockers of the bug above. If it's not on that bug, or I'm not cc'd
on an email about it, I'll probably miss it.
To get a change committed to the branch, first commit it to trunk as
usual, and then request it to be merged -- ideally by filing a blocker
bug on PR33849, or by cc'ing me on the commit email.
What's next? Once the branch is in good shape, a first release
candidate will be made available for testing. The schedule for the
release is under "Upcoming Releases" on http://llvm.org.
