In my opinion, LLVM is an overgrown project whose organization structure
didn't follow.  I don't know about FreeBSD patches specifically
but in general the hardest part is finding someone to approve your
patch.  Many patches rot without a single reply from anyone, and I think
the whole process discourages people from trying.
