Thank you for selecting my GSoC proposal!

hello everybody,
I am very much happy to announce that my GSoC 2008 proposal[1] was accepted. Thank you very much for accepting my proposal.
My mentor is Tanya Lattner.
I would like to know how should I communicate with my mentor( using this dev-list, #llvm at Oftc.net or by any other means)?
I started to work on my project(right now I am further looking into the nightly tester source[2] and the nightly tester script).
It’s a pleasure to work with LLVM community this time.Thanks again!

Regards,
-Rajika

The best way is to use llvm-dev. The community may have some comments and suggestions regarding the project. However, if you need to reach me personally, you can do so at this address (tonic 'at' nondot.org).

My advice is to do the following to get you started:

1) Build llvm and llvm-gcc (from svn).
2) Set up a nightly tester and sucessfully send results to the llvm server.

Once you have done those two things, you will need to get a replica of the llvm server setup on your local machine. You'll need to install apache (2.0 flavor), php (4.X), and mysql (4.X).

I'm wrapping up a few things that I have out of tree and will check them in this weekend. I'll provide you with the database schema and a script for testing adding stuff to the database.

Lastly, please keep in mind that I do work full time and this is a side project for me as well. So I won't respond instantly to emails. I'm occasionally on irc.

My advice is to do the following to get you started:

  1. Build llvm and llvm-gcc (from svn).

I have already done this. I compiled llvm with gcc 4.2.1 and there seems to be some issues with gcc 4.2.1[1] since this affect my other work I am planning to compile llvm with gcc 4.0, hope this doesn’t have any side effect with this work.

  1. Set up a nightly tester and sucessfully send results to the llvm
    server.

Once you have done those two things, you will need to get a replica of the
llvm server setup on your local machine. You’ll need to install apache
(2.0 flavor), php (4.X), and mysql (4.X).

Thanks for the great guide!
