RE: [cdt-dev] common gdb plugin
I think this is an interesting discussion, but it's tangential to what I
suggested. My suggestion was for a plugin to house gdb-specific
things between the CDI-GDB ajnd CDI-GDB plugin.
- gdb-isms do not belong in the base cdt debug plugin. I.e., those
plugins should house things common between CDI and DSF but not gdb
- the fact that the base cdt debug plugins currently house CDI is not
ideal but that has nothing to do with my suggestion

Sorry for the confusion. There was no
official decision to stop fixing bugs for CDI. I should not have
about bug fixes, but more of new features. If there will not be any
new features in CDI, then copying the
code might be a sufficient solution, to allow the copied DSF code to
evolve with new features.
But then bug fixes would have to be duplicated...
Tough call. I'm ok with either one, if
someone wants to take the time to move things around.

help make this decision.
- Marc, I probably missed the call when the agreement was announced.
Many companies are still shipping products based on CDI and it's a big
investment for them to switch to DSF/GDB. If we stop fixing bugs that's
not going to force them to switch to DSF. They will simply copy the
source code and will try to fix the problems themselves.
- I understand you having been in the similar situation before. You are
now the only person who works full time on DSF/GDB and if Ericsson decide
to stop supporting it then what?
- Doug, you can pretend that the CDI is not there, but it is there :)
