I've put the pre-release tar balls here:

I'm asking for help to test this release and to review documentation. If anyone 
can spare some time to help out, I would really appreciate it. The more people 
that test, the better this release will be.

Secondly, now that the tarballs have been created, everyone is free to check in 
documentation changes into the the release branch (and cvs main too). For 
code changes, please check them into mainline CVS, then email me to let
me know that they should be pulled into the release.

For testing, we would like a mix of people to do x86 and ppc. Please send email 
to the list if you plan to test, what architecture, and if you will use the 
llvm-gcc binary or compile it yourself. That way, I know who to expect results 

Here are some basic guidelines.

1) Build and install llvmgcc, or use the binary.
2) Build llvm. It would be great if some could do objdir != srcdir and vice 
versa. You could also try doing a make install.
3) Once everything is ready, run make check (report results)
4) Lastly, run the tests in llvm-test. Report results.

I know this may be a bit rushed, but if the testing and documentation 
review could be completed by April 18th, that would be great. Please 
either commit updates to the documentation, or mail patches to the 
llvmbugs list. Future releases will be more organized and provide more 
time for testing. I know everyone has busy schedules, so I appreciate all 
the help.
