Hi, Everyone,

Looking through the Linux Foundation's 2020 FOSS Contributor Survey report:


I see at least two places where LLVM projects are called out:

Pg 64, Q 22, "For each of the following security practices, please 
indicate which specific tools do you use:"

  * "Dynamic Analysis Tools"
      o "Tools like Google’s OSS-Fuzz, syzkaller, and LLVM’s libFuzzer
        topped the list of text responses for this question. Valgrind,
        american fuzzy lop, and the Go Toolchain were also mentioned
        frequently, along with various sanitizers like ASan, UBSan,
        MSan, KASAN, and clang sanitizers."
  * "Static Analysis Tools"
      o "Text responses to this question overwhelmingly cited Coverity
        Scan and clang security checkers, like Clang Static Analyzer,
        clang-tidy, and clang-analyze. SonarQube and SonarCloud appeared
        several times as well..."

Pg 87, Q 64, "Which compiler(s) do you typically use?"

  * "LLVM Compiler Suite" was selected by 29% of respondents.

Graphic for Q 64

I think that this is a compliment to, and speaks to the tremendous value 
of, our entire community.
