Dear All,

My thoughts on the matter is that such an email is on topic provided 
that the person seeking employees is specifically looking for an 
employee for a position that uses LLVM or one of its related subprojects 
(e.g., Clang).  My rationale is that we allow job postings on our lists 
for LLVM-related positions, and so this seems very similar.  My problem 
with the post is that it does not specifically state that the person is 
seeking employees for an LLVM-related position; if we allow such posts, 
we should require that in the future.

That said, I'd like to hear what others think.  Is my reasoning 
reasonable, or should we take a hard line against such posts?
