Sorry its more to give you guys a heads up in case they ask about it 
being of interest and know that
its something of interest outside that project.  The Yocto and its 
related projects are a embedded build
system. Since its goal is to build the whole custom embedded 
distribution I've suggested that they start
testing upstream gcc/llvm.

My reasoning is that while we have a testsuite for both having a 
software that builds and supports lots
of real software can be of use. To my knowledge it has the ability to 
build over 10000 open source

Basically the idea is to automate testing of not just the testsuite but 
a suite of real software builds
nightly or so as it takes time to build all that software. You can of 
course just build one piece of
software and its dependencies separate through.

This is a link to the project:https://www.yoctoproject.org/
And a link to all the recipes for building software it supports that are 

The GCC side knows as well but thought I would give you guys the heads 
up as well and sorry for not
explaining it better,
