I think David and I are probably the most familiar with how WinEH works in
LLVM, but I don't think either of us has time to prepare a talk for the dev
meeting. I'm trying to prepare a talk on supporting the MS debug info
format in LLVM this year. That said, I'll definitely have time to answer
questions in person. It might be worth setting up a BoF to schedule some

We gave a 30m technical talk last year, which should have a lot of
information, but it's probably not the last word or best reference on how
EH works.
