Dear prospective GSoC students, dear LLVMers,

On behalf of the LLVM Foundation I have to provide some clarifications
here to make the situation clear.

This is not quite true. The LLVM Foundation never accepted this
project. The reason is simple – there is no acceptance procedure and
therefore the above statement is misleading.

I need to remind that the participation in the Google Summer of Code
is twofold: bringing students to LLVM via well-defined summer projects
and doing something useful for the project itself, therefore the
project should be connected to LLVM Compiler Infrastructure

Hope this makes everything clear.
With best regards, Anton Korobeynikov
