So as soon as we get that + there's no glaring regressions I think we'll be in decent shape.
For anyone wondering why I tend towards the conservative side: - making it build, hence having partial LLVM X support is not enough The 'partial' word will be missed and you'll get plenty of unhappy users as regressions happen - missing a wide/popular test base The odd report of game X working fine is _greatly_ appreciated, yet quite limited - test results are not [easily] accessible by many people We want something to refer to as we decide to allow (or forbid) LLVM X HTH Emil _______________________________________________ mesa-dev mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/mesa-dev
