Admittedly we're very interested in becoming ARM backend maintainers as our product heavily relies on LLVM.

However, we don't have testing resources to test both our product and LLVM on a host of target boards.  We have some chumbys, beagleboards, iPhones, iPod Touches, tables, Android Phones, etc.  And most of those are already booked solid with our own regression tests (most of which are based on llvm-test-suite)

Could ARM enable us with testing hardware/resources?

There is no point in define ARM as a release-blocking target if there
is no commitment in actually fixing release bugs. What keeps ARM on
the bench is just the lack of general commitment. Somebody has to own
it, for real.
