There are various reasons:
* bad code that gcc accepts
* non standard C code accepted by gcc (variable length array for example)
* -Wall (+ -Werror) does not enable the same set of warnings
* clang is C99 by default, not gcc.
* etc

Out of pure intellectual curiosity, what’s the general reason why everything won’t compile on Clang? Is it that GCC ignores errors and alows non-standard code? Or is it Clang that didn’t implement everything according to standards? (In terms of C and C++ standards)

You might be interested in the Gentoo tracker for Clang-specific failures:

Amazing decrease from 9.5% to 5.7%.
I guess it will be possible to compile a full Linux distribution with clang in only a few years.

Aaron, Planet Debian has already an account:
https://twitter.com/planetdebian

Vincent, why not but it would help to get that in a better format (RSS, XML or RFC 822 format).

A Debian Planet feed would be great also. I don’t know if this exists already, however.

Having an account for new Debian maintainer [1] would be cool, I guess!

Thank you for doing this. I see that a lot of people find it confusing why there isnt a change log between beta releases.

Amazon gives 10 000 US$/year to Debian for such experiment.

We are building, for now, just for amd64. There are still so much work to do. It would be a mistake to try tackling every issues at the same time.

What is “AWS donation” ?

Are you only building x86 or other arch too ?

Sorry, I missed your comment.

I am not planning to do that soon but that would be nice.
By the way, clang is already the compiler used to be Firefox under Mac OS X.

clang-modernize-3.5_3.5~svn202666-1~exp1_amd64.deb 03-Mar-2014 09:37 3.1M
clang-modernize-3.5_3.5~svn202688-1~exp1_i386.deb 03-Mar-2014 09:37 3.3M

Why this two have different version numbers?

@Seb: For now, you cannot install both clang 3.4 & 3.5.
I reported this bug:
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=736057
and I will be happy to mentor someone to fix that bug.

Thank you for this update.
Somehow I can’t figure out how to install clang 3.4 and 3.5 in parallel.
When I try installing clang 3.5 apt says it will replace clang-3.4 (same for clang-modernize-3.4 lldb-3.4)
I run on ubuntu saucy.
Do you know if can be done ?

Hi, Sylvestre.

Congrats on the new job. Just a speculative thing: do you plan on experimenting with compilation/speed comparisons of firefox/iceweasel with clang against gcc?

I guess that this would be a super nice thing to know about the browsers.

Before I do something like this, would you anticipate any improvement at all from excluding features from firefox (e.g., accessibility features, parental controls etc.) as is advertised by this unofficial build for windows:

http://www.palemoon.org/technical.shtml

?

Thanks for any insight,
Rogério.
