[LLVMdev] Difficulties Getting a Bug Fix Committed

Hi all, 

I've been waiting for almost three months now to get a patch committed to LLVM
that fixes what I consider to be a fairly significant bug in the JIT
(http://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=13678) but I've been having a hard time
getting traction on it.  So far Duncan Sands is the only one who has given it
any attention, but as of the last time I checked it still wasn't committed and
the bug is still open.

Right now we ship our code with a patch to fix this in 3.1, I really don't
want to have to do that again for 3.2.

I appreciate the difficulties in running a project as large as LLVM, and it
looks like there are some recent structural changes that might decentralize
some of the review/commit burden, but it doesn't speak well for your project
when you have a bug with a fix and a unit test just ready to go that's not
getting into the next release.

Can anyone help me move this forward?

If you are not willing to control your own mind, there are plenty of other
people who are willing to do it for you.
