RMS Objects To Support For LLVM’s Debugger In GNU Emacs’s Gud.el

An anonymous reader writes with the news that Richard Stallman is upset over the prospect of GNU Emacs’s Grand Unified Debugger (Gud.el) supporting LLVM’s LLDB debugger. Stallman says it looks like there is a systematic effort to attack GNU packages and calls for the GNU Project to respond strategically. He wrote his concerns to the mailing list after a patch emerged that would optionally support LLDB alongside GDB as an alternative debugger for Emacs. Other Emacs developers discounted RMS’ claims by saying Emacs supports Windows and OS X, so why not support a BSD-licensed compiler/debugger? The Emacs maintainer has called the statements irrelevant and won’t affect their decision to merge the LLDB support.
