If you are referring to the project on the Open Projects page 
(http://llvm.cs.uiuc.edu/OpenProjects.html), then there are actually two 
similar projects.

The first project is to just use LLVM to compile whatever programs you'd 
like to compile.  These could be programs you've written, programs 
you're working on (for work or school), or open-source programs.  The 
key is that the programs haven't been compiled using LLVM before; 
therefore, they may expose bugs in LLVM or show situations in which LLVM 
does not optimize a program well.

The second project is to add programs to the LLVM test suite 
(http://llvm.cs.uiuc.edu/docs/TestingGuide.html).  Naturally, 
contributions to the llvm-test suite must be open source (as we're 
redistributing the program's code as part of the test suite).

Does this answer your question?
