Probably a better approach would have been to send this to cdt-xxx-dev list
so folks would know, this would have permit some exchange/discussion.
Not everybody follows the in/outs of cdt bugzilla.

Capturing them in a PR __is great__, that allows follow up, but we have no idea what
they mean, they are vague and sometimes incomplete, see

Fair enough.

What exactly do you call specifications, those 5 lines paragraph
under [plan ...] subject in bugzilla ?
Are those specifications?

We have some docs in cdt-doc from John, Hoda, Sean, etc ...
The last, was from Chris Wiebe, the class browser.
We are planning to continue do the same, for the other features, and posting them
in the appropriate cdt-xx-dev list as things gets clearer.

Hopefully, that will clear any fear you have about massive commit from the commmiters here.
