News and articles from around the web

Video and slides are now available from the talk "Getting Started with LLVM. The TL;DR Version", by Diana Picus.

If you're interested RISC-V support for LLVM, you might appreciate my recent RISC-V LLVM status update on the lowRISC blog. See below for details about the upcoming birds of a feather session and a working session after the LLVM dev meeting.

Reminder: the LLVM Dev Meeting is now just a couple of weeks away (Oct 18-19th, San Jose). You can see the whole program on sched.com. Registration will be closing soon. Additionally, Tanya is looking for volunteer session moderators.

Videos from CppCon 2017 are now appearing on YouTube.

Review corner

The LLVM Weekly review corner serves to highlight patches that are stuck waiting awaiting review, or work from first-time contributors. See here for more information and how to submit you work for inclusion. Of course the hope is that highlighting these patches will enable LLVM Weekly readers will step up and help to get them merged. I'll be reporting back each week on any activity generated on these patches, as well as sharing a new batch. If you want your patch included you must submit it via the linked form.

Last week featured four patches, with three out of four seeing fresh review activity after inclusion. D36357 sadly still has no feedback. Thanks to Dimitry Andric, Matthias Braun, and Anna Zaks for contributing review comments to last week's patches.

Unfortunately I've received no valid submissions for inclusion in this week's issue. I'm going to keep the review corner trial going for a little longer, but obviously without patch submissions we might conclude that the review corner experiment should go to an end.

In the absence of external submissions, let me advertise my own stuck review:

LLVM commits

Clang commits
