I think I might be able to set up a nightly tester for Linux x86 (32- 

Although I've been following LLVM for quite a while now, I feel like I  
can't really contribute to it, because of lack of time and knowledge.  
Hopefully this way I can contribute...

I have some questions though:

active bug reporting/resolving of bugs found by the nightly tester and  
It's not that I'm not willing to (in fact, I'd love to), but I just  
wouldn't be able to find the time to do it properly. I try to report  
bugs I run into from time to time, but that's highly dependent on how  
busy I am doing my actual Phd work (to which LLVM is only partially
