Apply for the ownership of the AVR backend

Hello, every administrator of LLVM,

May I ask to to become the code owner of the AVR backend, and be listed in llvm/CODE_OWNER.txt ?

The original code owner Dylan McKay (♟ dylanmckay) has been silent for over 16 months, and I have made many commits during Dylan’s silent period.

Currently

  1. Clang+LLVM+CompilerRT+LLD for AVR are fully functioning, without any dependency on the GNU tool chain,

  2. many bugs are fixed (Issues · llvm/llvm-project · GitHub )

  3. most functionalities of avr-gcc/avr-binutils are ported to clang+llvm. (avr-gcc - GCC Wiki )

  4. some minor spots still exist, which I will continue to fix

Dylan also supports my application, which I have confirmed that via his email.

So I apply for the code ownership, to facilitate my futhre work.

Here is the owner change patch: ⚙ D150519 [AVR][NFC] Change the owner of the AVR backend

Sounds good to me. I’ve sent a number of patches to the AVR backend that got reviewed by @benshi001 (and vice versa), and I’ve had thorough reviews on those. I think @benshi001 will be a good maintainer.

Makes sense to me as well. Given there are no objections so far, please land your patch. Congratulations and thank you for stepping up!
