Considering I haven't finished it yet (it's a background task), no.

No extra patches. These are all the patches in the project listed in a 
single spreadsheet. You will note that some are arch independent, some 
are arch dependent (arm or x86_64) and some are target specific.

If you configure the tools/patchstatus.conf file (it can be stored as 
~/.patchstatus.conf) then you can type "make kernel-patch-status" in any 
of the target directories to see status info (pulled from this shared 
spreadsheet) about each patch relevant to that target,

This is a generic  mini-conference on all things LLVM in Linux. The 
LLVMLinux Project is merely one of those things. We will certainly be 
doing talks about LLVMLinux project during the conference.

That we were asked to lead it was very cool, but the point is to be 
agnostic, and not merely push a single project.

All of this has been covered in previous meetings and minutes. I invite 
you to attend the next one (doodle poll was just published to choose a
