First, thanks to Anton for enrolling the LLVM organization into GSOC and
setting up the application template!
Anton and I are the organization admin's for LLVM's GSOC participation.
I'd like to clarify the statement above.
Not having contributed to LLVM before will **not** disqualify you.
However, prior LLVM contributions and experience is is taken into
consideration when selecting and ranking applications. Mentors may also
take it into consideration when selecting which students they would like
to mentor. The application asks you to include this information.
