Re: [ide-dev] Fixing the Target platform editor

Patches to improve PDE target editor are very welcome. If Vikas or I
missed some existing patches, please us know via the PDE mailing list.

AFAIK PDE has not yet received a contribution for the target editor in
the new generic editor. So far Sopot contributed a template to
generate it  which is already available (great). But we did not yet
receive the editor support. Not sure if that is planned, I have not
seen a related bug.

I think it would be great if more people could contribute to PDE.
Gunnars patch for PDE was rebased today and I plan to review it this
week. Also I'm working closely with our PDE contributor Martin
Karpisek and hope that he will become PDE committer soon.

Best regards, Lars
