[7.0.0 Release] Status update and final call for release notes

Hello everyone,

According to the release schedule (on the right at https://llvm.org/)
the final tag should go in today, but we're not quite ready.

There are five open blockers on https://llvm.org/PR38406 which can
hopefully be fixed soon (or punted on), then we need a Release
Candidate 3, and after that we can hopefully get the final tag in,
still in early September.

Also, if you contributed anything interesting in the last six months
and didn't write anything about it in the release notes, it's very
high time to do so. You can just send me some text in an email and
I'll be happy to commit it for you.

Thanks,
Hans

Sid, is it worth mentioning the Hexagon support you added to lld? I suppose it might depend on how many relocations were supported before the branch point (~Aug 1 IIRC).

If it was Aug 1 then no. On August 27th the last relocations needed to link the Linux kernel were added after that I would say lld for hexagon in a shape that made it interesting.
