I haven't seen any announcement on the GNU lists (gcc, buinutils).

We could send an email to those lists, though most of them have
already attended at the cauldron, and they may find it a bit
redundant. Don't we have a few GCC folks in our midst, already?

I think, in the long term, it'd be good if more LLVM developers went
to the cauldron and more GNU developers to the LLVM meetings, but I'm
happy to be the bridge for now. At least to lay the ground work and
help ease the expectations. We have strong opinions on both sides and
we don't always agree, so without the proper expectations, there could
be some serious misunderstandings, damaging the collaboration.

Having said that, I'd be happy to have GNU folks on that BoF, just
like we had LLVM folks at the cauldron. I think it was a positive
