Hi all,

Is it possible to add zlib source code into llvm repo? Any advice on how to
do so?

Are you asking whether it is possible to add it to your local repository,
or to the mainline llvm.org distribution?  In the case of the former, it
just requires cmake hacking.  For the later, we’d need to have extreme
justification of why it is absolutely necessary.  It isn’t a goal of llvm
to include all dependencies out of the box, and each one we pick up
introduces new complexities.
