[cfe-dev] LLVM 3.4 Branch Freeze

That’s a long laundry list of bugs there. It would be great to have them fixed, but the reality of the situation is that they won’t be fixed for weeks or more, if at all. And with Christmas coming up, it makes things even worse. There are a few days before Phase III starts to have some progress on them. But if they don’t make it, then we’ll have to release without them.

I propose that we either delay this release until these have been fixed, or plan on a point release in the near future. I recommend that we put out another two release candidates, one at the end of this week, and one after another two weeks or so, to allow for these outstanding issues to be resolved.
