PTX Backend in 2.9

What is the LLVM policy regarding distribution of incomplete back-ends? I ask because I am working on the PTX back-end and know that it is vastly incomplete at the moment, yet it is included in the 2.9 release branch and builds by default. I do not necessarily have a problem with it being distributed, I just want to make sure that the people in charge of the 2.9 release know that it would be a stretch to even call it “experimental.”

Hi Justin,

Don't worry about it, we'll just add an appropriate comment to the release notes.
