Bug#640532: RFH: gnat-gps -- Build gnatcoll from the sources of GPS
AdaCore have a new library called gnatcoll, containing lots of useful
bits and pieces. The sources for this library are in a subdirectory of
the GPS sources (package gnat-gps). I intend to build new binary
packages for gnatcoll from these sources but I would like someone to
help, if possible.
This task can be divided into:
- analyze the upstream changelog to determine which version of GPS would
best work with gnat-4.6. Take into account that gnat-gps must build
against and run with libgnatvsn4.6 and libgnatprj4.6.
- analyze the sources of gnatcoll to see what other packages they
build-depend on. Decide on how to split these sources into several
packages so as to minimize dependencies. For example, split the
database interfaces into packages that build-depend on gnade.
- decide whether to use (and build-depend on) gprbuild, or to stick with
- make the changes necessary in the packaging, which is maintained at
