LLVM Release Schedules: 5.0.2, 6.0.1

Hi,

We don't normally do X.Y.2 releases, but there has been some interest in
getting a 5.0.2 release out with the Spectre mitigations included, so I
am proposing the following schedule for a 5.0.2 release:

LLVM 5.0.2
  -rc1 Mon Mar 19
  -final Mon Mar 26

To keep things easy for testers, 5.0.2 will be for Spectre related fixes only
and won't be opened up for general bugs.

And here is the schedule for 6.0.1:
  - rc1 April 15
  - Merge Request Deadline May 18
  - rc2/Merge Deadline May 25
  - Final June 8

Let me know what you think.

What about the other projects? lldb, lld, etc. Are we going to do a
5.0.2 for them too?
Or it just LLVM & Clang?

Thanks,
Sylvestre

Hi Tom,

I would be interested in getting my Spectre related patches for MIPSR2 into the 5.0.2 release.

I will be available for the 5.0.2 release testing.

Thanks,
Simon

Sounds good to me. I'll do Windows testing and packaging as usual.

Cheers,
Hans

There will be a 5.0.2 release for all projects to stay consistent.

This includes libcxx and libcxxabi?
