[llvm-dev] New LLVM git repository conversion prototype

Sorry for the delay -- I was hoping to get this email sent out _before_
going *poof* for the holidays, but did not quite manage.

I've created a new conversion, at same url <
https://github.com/llvm-git-prototype>. The tree hashes are all the same as
before -- only the commit hashes have changed.

If no more objections, I propose the next step is to call it final, and
move that set of repositories over to <https://github.com/llvm/>.

The changes since last time:
- Changed "llvm-svn" trailer -- it's now in git trailer format, "llvm-svn:
1234" instead of "llvm-svn=1234". If there are existing git trailers, it's
added to the existing trailers. Generally there aren't, because,
unfortunately phabricator doesn't use git trailer formatting.
- The <https://github.com/llvm-git-prototype/llvm> repository has had most
of the branches removed, for convenience. Only the release branches and
tags remain. The others are all still available in <
- The release branches and tags have been given nicer names. I ended up
choosing "llvmorg-7.0.1-rc1" for the tags, and "release/7.x" for the
branches. I haven't done anything about the proposed branch-point tags yet
-- they can be added in the future.
