We're already building at least one package (hfsplus-tools) with llvm because it relies on non-standard C extensions that gcc doesn't support, and I believe the current software rasteriser in mesa depends on it. In terms of it being the general compiler - it needs to work on all the architectures we care about, it needs to have a level of maintenance in Fedora at least as good as gcc, it needs to build better code than gcc and (most importantly) it needs somebody to actually take responsibility for proving all of that and making the transition happen. -- Matthew Garrett | email@example.com -- devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/devel
