The main objective is to make sure everything compiles and works in
the released version of the code, so checking out and testing the code
once we've branched, filing bugs and trying to get them fixed is
basically what the release is all about.

For Clang and the main llvm libraries, we provide pre-built binaries
in the release, built with the utils/release/test-release.sh script. I
don't know if it would be practical to do this for lldb as well.
