The Red Hat eCos engineers will not generally answer questions sent by
private email, especially non-trivial questions. They may respond to
public questions on ecos-discuss, depending on such factors as their
work load, the complexity of the question, and how likely it is that
the answer will benefit other eCos users in future. If this is
insufficient for your needs you should consider a commercial support
contract, please contact ecos-info@redhat.com for details.

The various host-side tools (configtool, gdb, ...) have been developed
independently. At some point they may start interacting via e.g. a
CORBA backplane, and things like setting the baud rate correctly will
just work. I have no idea when anything like that is likely to happen.

Of course gdb is used for many different systems, not just eCos. It
cannot be changed in ways that will affect the ability to debug other
