Just for fun I added clang to the list of compilers that my random tester beats on. It found a codegen bug in short order. Would you folks say that clang is ready for the fairly high degree of abuse produced by my tool or would it be better to wait until it matures? Thanks,
I say beat it up and file problem reports for it. No better way to get it in tip top shape. I'll assume you're doing C testing. If C++, I'd say wait a while, as C++ is only 3-5% of the way there. I'd probably say, only file 10-20 reports, and then stream more in as those are fixed. This should help reduce the work that you do and self limit so you don't file a thousand or more bug reports, which, I suspect we wouldn't want.
