[llvm-dev] Migrating the llvm-emacs mode to a separate git repository

Hello llvm devs,

Melpa[1] is pretty much the most common package manager for emacs and very
recently the llvm-mode got removed from it[2] due to performance issues.
This issue is not unique to llvm-mode, but affects a bunch of projects with
very large git repositories[3].

Will it be possible to split this into a new separate git repo? This should
make it easier for the emacs community to work with this code and make it
less intimidating for new users to contribute to.

Current melpa maintainers and previous llvm-mode commitors are in CC.
