I was getting my information from here:


llvm-toolchain-3.8 (1:3.8~+rc1-1~exp1) experimental; urgency=medium

  * New snapshot release
  * Cmake migration. Done by Andrew Wilkins. Many thanks to him
    - Remove LLVM-internal tools (lit, FileCheck, not, tblgen, etc.)
    - Remove llvm-X.Y-tools package, because it contained only
      internal tools that are not intended for distribution.

So now I'm a bit confused.
