Hi everyone,

There are a number of issues with the current name of the Clang project:

 * It is prone to incorrect type setting, typically as CLang, CLANG, or
most commonly  c̦҉̫̘̺̹̖̗͒͆͋̈̃̇߯l߲҉̷̡̰̖͈̤̺͒҆̾̚͡͝a̺̹͍̔߭͠ͅn͋́͡g̱߫̉
 * The C++ compiler ends in the string "g++", which causes problems for
compiler wrapper scripts
 * The name has been used by a kickstarter project
<https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/260688528/clang>, causing
incalculable confusion[0]

For the above reasons, and to support the LLVM project's rebranding effort
<http://blog.llvm.org/2016/04/undefined-behavior-is-magic.html>, the Clang
project has been renamed to Discord <http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Discord>.
Voiced by John de Lang-Cie (French for "John of Clang"), Discord is
and perfectly embodies the virtues of the Clang (now, Discord) project:
disregard for established standards, an emphasis on chaos, and a firm
belief that undefined behavior is magic!

Thank you for your understanding.
