Change Process

Dear Ma’am or Sir;

If this information is posted, please forgive me for failing to have found it. I’m looking for information on the processes by which major changes are made to the LLVM IR language, or perhaps just the mailing list to which I should subscribe to keep abreast of such changes?

Many Thanks,

JD Jones

JD, you should subscribe to this mailing list, llvm-dev, and note in particular emails tagged with [RFC] (request for comment) in the subject.

Sometimes they come up in code reviews (llvm-commits), larger changes are probably discussed here on llvm-dev.

If you’re interested only in notification of such changes, the most efficient way might be to use Herald rules https://reviews.llvm.org/herald/ to subscribe to/be notified of reviews or commits (I think it covers commits too) that affect certain files (like the LangRef documentation page itself, and maybe some of the core IR header files (for smaller IR changes that might not rise to the level of being formalized in the LangRef? Not sure))
