Package: llvm-toolchain-3.8
Severity: wishlist

As a matter of consistency with the rest of the LLVM package, and as the
release management of llvm, clang, libc++ etc is done at the same time
We should package openmp as part of the llvm-toolchain-3.8 packaging, especially
as openmp can be built in-tree.

We already have openmp  in Debian but moving it will requires some steps:
* we only support one version of openmp on the system. If we keep the LLVM-toolchain
paradigm, we should have openmp-3.8, etc... this will probably need to update
llvm-defaults ...

Openmp is pretty easy to package, besides the multiple versions thing, it should be too hard.
