Re: [cdt-dev] stop on main by default

I don't have a strong opinion either way, but I'm leaning towards not stopping on main.
Maybe with the exception of the time the user chooses "Debug as -> C/C++ Application".
In that case, the user is probably not setup for debugging yet, and would appreciate
having the debugger stop on main.  I think...
However, along the lines of what James is saying, I believe we should treat CDT as its own
product and have it behave as we feel is best for CDT users.  We should make sure that
people that re-package CDT can configure it fully, but I don't think we need to set defaults
based on that.  Defaults should provide the best user experience, out of the box.
Also, let's be careful about adding more and more preferences. 
Quoting Doug (!/dougschaefer/status/41915124495286272)
"Adding Eclipse preferences takes our inability to agree on functionality and makes it
the user's problem."
Configurability by integrators is one thing, user preferences is something else.

I wouldn't want to change the default without having a way for products to override it. Isn't there a customization.ini that can override preferences?

Right, and that's an important point.  All products already override global preferences (if you're not you're missing out on a good thing!):

So having it configurable would be good. The default could remain the same, but the CDT EPP product (for example) could switch the default so ordinary users downloading from get the experience CDT committers think is best.

Same applies to those who don't want "stop on main" being enabled by default, doesn't it?
We have had enough troubles with all disappeared features.
