rdar URLs

I've been wondering for some time: what are the rdar:/problem/... URLs
posted every now and then? Is this some internal bug tracker? Is there any
way for external developers such as me to access this tracker?

Radar is Apple's internal bug tracking system.

Registered Apple developers have access to some of this data via Apple's Developer Support group.

Since clang hasn't been formally released, the ADS channel won't help you.

Chris may be able to give us more info...

I think you can get access to some radars through bugreporter.apple.com, but probably not much. Most of the bugs filed in rdar are not particularly interesting ("foo doesn't work"). If there is a commit that fixes a bug without a testcase, feel free to demand a testcase from the committer :). The rdar:// identifiers are mostly just for interlinking the files, just like bugzilla PR numbers. Amusingly, the llvm-gcc sources are littered with rdar numbers for all the apple local changes, which is pretty useless (IMO) even for people with access to rdar.
