Sending this to the wider cdt-dev mailing list. As we are learning about where best to have discussions I wanted to make this interesting view proposal from Ari @ Intel widely visible.

Hi CDT devs,

I work at Intel as a software engineer, and I have a question about contributing a new feature to CDT. So, we have had a long time our own plugin which provides an extra view called "Function Call History". It's a fairly simple view which shows a hierarchical view of every C/C++ function call that was recorded by gdb. We have not been developing it for a long time now, since it's "mature" and it just ships with every Intel oneAPI Base Toolkit release, and is optionally installed to user's Eclipse installation. Now, we are thinking about upstreaming this view to CDT. I'm curious how the process would go and how long this might take to get this new view accepted as part of CDT? I know it's to easy to say, since the review might take a long time and there are also some restrictions when the view can be used (it requires a specific version of gdb, Linux OS and of course, Intel CPU). So, I'm not even sure if such a feature could be accepted by CDT due to those conditions.

Any comments are welcome.
