After this release, the next time they don't build, I will
drop them
and ask ftpmaster for GDB to be removed from the HPPA port
unless I've
seen some effort to get the hppa-linux port integrated

What GDB version are you working against?  The one in sid, or the
in upstream CVS?  They've changed a lot.

We're working on the one in sid, with the aim of getting the hppa diff
between upstream and that one integrated upstream, as we were asked

Well, I've made about a thousand lines of changes to the one in sid
that I'll be uploading shortly, in order to integrate it with the GDB
CVS repository.  So you will probably want to pick up the changes
from pa-tdep.c and pa-linux-tdep.c between the version currently in sid
and the new one.  It's all mechanical; it needs some non-mechanical
updating, but I don't have a local HPPA system to test it on.

OK, that's good to know.

In general, if you're working on a package it's good to coordinate with
either the package maintainer or the upstream authors...

Sure, that's why we contacted either, we sent you a mail on april 29th,
and as Grant said, we asked on IRC, where Carlos O'Donnel and Randolph Chung were present. Carlos seemed to speak authoritatively concerning Alan's work.

Anyway, we're not working on a package "per se", we're working on getting
changes merged upstream and fixing known bugs.
