I thought clang was a University of Illinois project.
There are notes from a meeting in 2007 when they announced clang to be part
of llvm, and it appears that out of 60 attendees there were a couple of
apple folks.
But i don't know much more about it, maybe it is 'apple's clang'. over a
decade ago i was setting up some X servers for toyota and noticed in the
documentation about 'Apple Services for Windows', but getting down into the
software i realized it was actually Samba. And you know I just can't seem
to find the word "Apple" on the author's wikipedia page. but maybe they had something
to do with it?
