Detailed Description

Benefit to Fedora

Scope

How To Test

User Experience

Dependencies

There's a baseline of functionality that I'm developing on top of Fedora 13's gdb.

Some features require additional work in gdb, which I've filed RFE bugs for. Naturally this will require coordination with gdb to ensure that they land in Fedora 14:

  • RHBZ #610241: RFE: please expose "info symbol ADDRESS" in the python API
  • RHBZ #610249: RFE: notification about changes in the inferior process


Contingency Plan

None necessary, simply remove the package
