Congratulations, i hope this works out for the best. May i suggest
taking out the registration requirement for dowloading llvm though?
I don't know what the reasons were of putting it in (perhaps DARPA
funding, but I'm just guessing here) but maybe it could be made optional
or otherwise state what the reasons for registering are. I know it says
"We'd like to collect some information about people and organizations
who are interested in LLVM" but that's basically the purpose of any such
form and people have become wary of these compulsory registrations.
Personally, I'd suggest making an optional survey for people if you want
to have a feeling for where llvm is used, but this is probably less and
less interesting as llvm gets more popular (the answers you're going to
get will asymptotically approach 'everywhere').
