LLVM Developers,

We are planning to change the official Web site and CVS server for  
LLVM to llvm.org starting this week.  The old name (llvm.cs.uiuc.edu)  
will simply become an alias for  llvm.org; previously, it was the  
other way around.

This change is intended to recognize and encourage the broader  
community of developers that are working on LLVM.  As you all know,  
LLVM was initially developed as part of a research project in my  
group at UIUC, funded primarily by NSF and UIUC.  It has grown  
tremendously and is now in active commercial use, and there are many  
developers outside UIUC contributing to it.  The server name change  
is intended to create an open-source identity that will encourage  
more external developers and companies to consider joining the effort  
and contributing code, time, and resources.

The Web site will still acknowledge UIUC's support and in fact, the  
underlying servers will continue to live in our research lab at  
UIUC.  The software copyright will also continue to be owned by  
UIUC.  All LLVM source code will be covered by the existing LLVM Open  
Source License, unless you are explicitly notified of any changes in  
this policy.

Any concerns or questions about these changes can be posted to  
llvmdev, simply by replying to this message.  Regards,

--Vikram Adve
