[Release-testers] [llvm-dev] [cfe-dev] 3.9.1 Release Schedule

One of the concerns I have as an out-of-tree compiler maintainer, is with the patch releases for LLVM; and in particular not having a clear understanding of what the patch releases will fix in order to determine if they are important to me or not.  For example, while X86 and ARM target fixes may be very important for a considerable number of LLVM users, in general they are not so critical to my non-X86 non-ARM target.

However, fixes to the handling of the ISO C math function builtins is.

Tracking a release out-of-tree is a huge amount of work, and I need to be careful with minimal resources not to track just for the sake of it.  Is there a statement or rolling-list of proposed changes for each LLVM/CFE patch release that I can use to guide me?

Hi Jack,

Thanks for reminding me, you should actually assign the bugs to me.
