Hi Jhonny,

Thanks for your interest in ThinLTO! Are you looking for a summer project,
or ongoing work in compilers, or clang/llvm specifically? Are you a
student? Note that these were project ideas for Google Summer of Code. The
GSoC application deadline has passed and we did have a student apply to
work on this particular project. So if that application ends up being
accepted then we will have someone working on that one. However, there are
other things to be done for ThinLTO, if you are interested in working on
it. I likely won't have the bandwidth to mentor another person, but of
course am happy to give pointers and advice, review patches, etc.
