I just followed this effort which seems very useful for developers building LLVM.
This email is to recommend that the LLVM team publish “official images” of compiled LLVM and Clang similar to what the GCC team has done for users of LLVM:
This docker image has over 1 million pulls and hundreds of stars, a good indicator that if you build it, it will have tremendous value to users who need to just compile with it. Information about how to enroll and publish “official images” can be found here:
The most significant use case for such official images is CI. Travis CI only has very old releases of most compilers, and so users often have to spend 15 lines of Travis recipe to get the latest versions installed, while the actual task of compiling can typically done in 1 line.
