[Flang-dev] [llvm-dev] flang in llvm.org source tree

Seems like this should also go to flang-dev so I'm adding it.

"flang" is basically a legacy project.  "f18" is the new ground-up build
of a Fortran LLVM project.  f18 is the thing that has the most
likelihood of becoming an "official" LLVM project.

However, it's probably going to be a while before we get there.  For one
thing, I haven't seen any posts on flang-dev that talk about making
changes to f18, proposing designs, etc.  The development seems
completely opaque right now, which is unfortunate.

I would like to see f18 become "official" sooner rather than later, both
to open up development and to get better code sharing across projects.
