[GSoC 2018] Request for review of GSoC proposal for "Improve debugging in optimized code"

Hi Vedant,

I am a first year M.Tech (computer science) student at IIIT Hyderabad. I am interested in working on two of the LLVM projects.

     1. Improve debugging for optimized code.

     2. Implement a single updater class for the dominator tree.

I have merged both the proposals in a single document because the GSoC portal allows me to upload only one document for applying to LLVM.

The proposal for "Implement a single updater class for the dominator tree" is under review by Jakub Kuderski.

Could you please review the proposal for "Improve debugging for optimized code"?

Apologies for late request. I would really appreciate if you can give me some feedback.

It’s great that you were able to diagnose a debug info issue in SCEVExpander. There are some known issues in this area. You might check whether https://reviews.llvm.org/D39985 addresses the problem.

Thanks for sending in your proposal. It looks good to me overall.

best,
vedant
