Hello Swift Developers,
In the Swift 5.0 timeframe, there was a branch of swift that roughly corresponded with that. The LLVM project has now branched for the 9.0 release but the 5.1 release was cut much earlier (closer to 8.0). I was wondering if the Swift project lead/core team has guidance on how to deal with creating a sync point for clang 9 and swift. Is there going to be another branch that is going to be created soon against the 9.0 release?
This is a general pain point where Swift is not in sync with the LLVM release cycle and branch points which makes it difficult to have a uniform build of clang and LLVM that can be consistently updated. I think that it would be really useful to have a consistent state where the LLVM and Swift projects sync around the release cycle.
