[llvm-dev] RFC: LLVM Build System Future Direction

We would keep the ability to specify source paths for things that live outside the mono-repo, just not for things inside the repository. This would have the impact of supporting `LLVM_EXTERNAL_*_SOURCE_DIR` for projects specified in `LLVM_EXTERNAL_PROJECTS` but not projects specified with `LLVM_ENABLE_PROJECTS`.

Does that address your concerns?
