Release Manager Position

After several years as LLVM release manager, I’ve decided to step down as release manager. I recently haven’t been able to focus as much time on LLVM development as I should, and I don’t want the releases to suffer because of that. I’ve enjoyed all of the releases I’ve done. We have a great team of testers. And the community as a whole really helps out so that we can produce a great produce.

I my stead I’m would like to nominate Tom Stellard and Hans Wennborg as my replacements. Tom already does the dot releases so he’s a natural candidate. And Hans may step in to help with the major releases while Tom is recovering. :slight_smile:

Share and enjoy!

I mostly interact with Tom outside of the mailling list, but I can say he’s great to work with.
+1 for my non-binding peanut gallery vote.

Thanks for all the good work, Bill!

Thank you for all of your hard work, Bill!

I love volunteering others, but I'm assuming they agree with this... :smiley:

I'm happy with either of them being the release manager, will continue
testing on ARM/AArch64 as usual.

Thanks Bill for the hard work!

cheers,

It’s really the best way to transfer responsibilities. :wink:

Yes, we talked with Tom and Hans before I sent this out. But this is a democracy, so I only nominate them. Others are free to offer their opinions and candidacies. :slight_smile:

I agree with this. Tom has done a great job with the dot releases and
Hans has a great background here too.

Thank you Bill, for all the hard work you've put into managing releases.
I know it's not easy, and you've done a great job.

p.s. Thanks for all the release automation scripts too. :slight_smile:

Thanks for all your work! I only joined in the release testing a few
cycles back, but it's been fun being part of the process, and I think
it's worked very well.

I'd be happy to do this if the community agrees.

Sounds like we have consensus, so, good luck guys and I look forward
to our next release :slight_smile:
