I am French Engineer in Informatics and I would want to build a start
up to manufacture mobile phones ( OEM level ). I am currently in discussion
We would want to use LLVM as our main compiler but we will need to complete it
to have a "commercial grade" one.
Here are our goals :
-Use a modified Elkhound as C/C++ front-end :
-Complete the ARM back-end
-Fix the bugs to be able to compile a complete Cross Linux from scratch for
arm with uclibc-nptl.
We believe that we will be able to speak of LLVM 2.0. :)
How many people/much time ( full-time developers) are/is needed to success in
this enterprise ?
What is the best background they need to have to work on this ? ( C, gcc,
lcc ? )
( we need these informations for our partners ).
It's a million dollars project and the stuff will be released under GPL.
We look forward to your answer,
