Fpm-gdb plugin for fpm available

The fpm plugin fpm-gdb for GNU-Linux users is available as a beta release.

It launches the gdb(1) GNU debugger in vim(1) terminal mode in an fpm(1)
repository on POSIX platforms, primarily GNU-Linux.

Suggestions and comments are welcome (preferably, using Issues entries
in the github repository). Pending feedback it will be released as a
v1.0.0 package shortly.

It’s purpose is to hide the details required to launch gdb(1) in terminal mode
when working with fpm(1) application packages.

See it at fpm plugins

If there is sufficient interest, a companion timing plugin using gprof(1) and a coverage plugin using gcov(1) are planned to simplify using GNU developer tools from fpm(1).
