Perhaps I’m missing something, but on GitHub I can’t see any of the history.  Assuming that this is just a GitHub UI issue, can you explain the steps for a downstream user who has clones of the llvm and clang repos that were forked at some point in the past, have been periodically merged, and contain a load of commits on top of upstream would migrate to using this?
