Why? Prerelease 1 tarballs are available for at least 3 weeks. PR6623
was entered into bugzilla at March, 20, etc., etc., etc.

It's pretty strange to hear about this from you. I hoped everyone who
worked with llvm for some non-trivial period of time knows about
"master" bug habits in the LLVM bugzilla. Such bugs were created for
2.5 and 2.6 releases, so, one should definitely expect to see another
one for 2.7.

Also, I should note that master bug in question was *explicitly*
mentioned in Tanya's 2.7 prerelease 1 e-mail sent on March, 17.
Have you seen this e-mail?
