There are no Ada patches for GDB 4.18. Since the maintainer has no interest
in supporting people who need GDB 4.17, and has actively fought efforts
to get the earlier version into Debian, Potato will ship without GDB support
for Ada.

I've filed an important bug on GDB about the description including Ada.
(I know I'll get flamed about the severity, but the description is
misleading, and that makes it unsuitable to release with that description.)
