This is to announce that LLVM 3.0 will be branching in one week at:
07:00:00 p.m. Friday October 14, 2011 PST
02:00:00 a.m. Saturday October 15, 2011 GMT
What this means for you?
Please get any last minute changes to your 3.0 features into the tree as soon as possible. Keep a very close eye on the build bots and the nightly tests. Please fix any regressions as quickly as possible. Now would be a good time to go through the LLVM bug database (http://llvm.org/bugs/) to see if there are any regressions from 2.9 reported, or easy bugs, which you can fix in a short amount of time.
Please refrain from starting new features, unless they can be turned off via a flag. Exception can always be made, but now isn’t the time to submit that major new X86 rewrite into the tree. That’s what 3.1 is for. When in doubt, use your better judgement. When that’s in doubt, ask the code owners (http://llvm.org/docs/DeveloperPolicy.html#owners).
Share and enjoy!
