Bug#211120: ITP: gnat-gdb -- Ada-aware version of GDB
Here are my reasons for adding this package to Debian:
- GDB 6.0 is not even in unstable yet. Unless it has a fair chance of
making it into Sarge, I think gnat-gdb would be appropriate.
- I am not sure that GDB 6.0 will work with Public versions of GNAT
(3.14p, 3.15p). My proposed package does.
- ACT has not formally released an Ada-aware version of GDB 6.0. If
they have such a version, it is in their CVS and I would rather
package a released version.
I have tested my proposed package personally and found it to work
without any problems. If anyone wants to test it, it is available
deb http://users.skynet.be/ludovic.brenta testing main
(the source package does not fit in my personal web space; please
email me if you want a copy).
However, I am more than willing to forego gnat-gdb if GDB 6.0 does fit
the bill and does make it into Sarge.
