Like C++? Not afraid of quirky build systems? Seeking LLVM co-maintainers

Hi all,

LLVM is becoming an increasingly integral part of our distribution
(with mesa now using it to build the LLVMpipe renderer, for example)
that I don't really feel comfortable maintaining it mostly by myself.

I'd love to have some extra help here -- especially those with deep
C++ expertise; until we get LLVM's own libcxx packaged (it currently
only supports OS X), LLVM's clang C/C++/Obj-C/Objc-C++ compiler tends
to play catch-up with g++/libstdc++ in its C++11 support, and since
upstream does not support older branches post-release, it's normally
up to us to try and backport patches whenever GCC in a stable release
gets updated.

Also, LLVM's packaging is currently not optimal --
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=787187 -- even if you're
not interested in C++ support, you're more than welcome to help fix
other issues!

TIA,

- --
