[LLVMdev] RFC: Criteria for backing out patches

Hi all,

looks like the WWDC has been a nice success, but
it is over now and all devs are back to normal mode.

I have written up a very subjective blog post here


in which I ask for clarifications to the development
policy wrt. backing out of buildbot-proven patches
because of (unintended) breakage in external projects.

It mostly amounts to how devs can cooperate to advance
the fundamental status quo regarding code quality in the
framework (i.e. the LLVM libs) and its clients (e.g.
Apple's OpenGL stack).

As you see this is a somewhat nagging need in me and
I would love to converge towards a satisfying solution.
