An update on the type-system-rewrite branch (http://llvm.org/viewvc/llvm-project/llvm/branches/type-system-rewrite/):
It's now to the point where it passes all regression tests all of single source (and most of externals/multisource) when using an LLVM 2.9 version of clang to compile programs to a rbc file. I have what looks like one more subtle type mapping bug to track down, which will hopefully resolve the remaining linker failures on multisource/externals. Then I'll update the branch to ToT LLVM again.
Once I'm done with that, I'm getting eager to land the branch on mainline. To do this, I need to update the various projects with buildbots that are going to break, specifically:
1. Clang - Jay, do you have a patch for this? Can you create a branch of the clang repo or send an updated version of the patch to the list?
2. llvm-gcc - While I'd like for it to be dead, :) I've been asked to prolong its life a little longer. I'll look into this.
3. dragonegg - I don't have any way to build or test this, so I can't update it. Is anyone willing to tackle this? The updates should be relatively straight-forward and I'm happy to help answer any questions.
I'd really like get this done and landed by this weekend. I have a very large collection of follow-on cleanups that can also happen once the main branch lands.
