Bug#561043: ITP: gdb-arm -- The GNU debugger for ARM targets

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Nicolas Dandrimont <nicolas.dandrimont@crans.org>

* Package name    : gdb-arm
  Version         : 7.0
  Upstream Author : Numerous (see gdb package)
* URL             : http://www.gnu.org/software/gdb/
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : The GNU debugger for ARM targets

GDB is a source-level debugger, capable of breaking programs at any
specific line, displaying variable values, and determining where
errors occurred. Currently, it works for C, C++, Fortran Modula 2 and
Java programs. A must-have for any serious programmer.

This package has been built for the arm-none-eabi target.  It is
intended for ARM developers and cross-compilers and is not needed by
normal users or developers.


I'm not really sure how I will package gdb for arm cleanly, as there
is no gdb-source package available.

The gdb-avr and gdb-m68hc1x packages bundle the DFSG-cleaned
gdb-6.4.90 source. This doesn't feel quite right to me, but it seems
to be the way to go.
