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 

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.
