[cdt-dev] Moving the RSE "Remote CDT Launch" feature into CDT

Hi all,
As some of you may know, one part of the TM / RSE offering is a "Remote CDT" Launch configuration, which allows
  • Uploading files through RSE-provided Services
  • Launching the program remotely through an RSE-provided shell
  • Debugging remotely through a remote gdbserver instance (requires local cross-gdb).
The implementation of this feature requires using CDT internal non-API [1] in order to get the debugger configuration page into the launch config UI, which is forbidden in Galileo.
We'd therefore think it makes sense to move the feature into the CDT [2] -- on the RSE side, only public API is being used. In other words, we propose adding a new optional CDT feature "Remote Launch" which depends on the RSE, and removing that feature from the RSE offering.
The feature itself doesn't expose any API (everything is "internal"), so renaming the plugin and/or the package should not be an issue if that is desired.
Does the CDT Community agree that this is a good thing to do?
Who is the right person to get in touch with for making it happen?
Is it realistic to get that done for M6?
