[llvm-dev] [4.0 Release] Schedule and call for testers

Dear everyone,

There's still plenty of time left, but I'd like to get the schedule
set before folks start disappearing for the holidays.

Note that this release will also switch us to the new versioning
scheme where the major version is incremented for each major release
(i.e., when the 4.0 branch is created, trunk will become 5.0).

If you'd like to help providing binaries and testing for your
favourite platform, please subscribe to the release-testers mailing
list [1].

I propose the following schedule for the 4.0 release:

- 12 January 2017: Create the 4.0 branch. RC1 tagged soon thereafter.

- 1 February: Tag RC2. All lose ends should have been tied up by now.

- 21 February: Final tag. Binaries and release announcement a few days later.

Unless there are any objections, I'll post this on the web page soon.
