As previously discussed (e.g.,
<URL:>), Ada should act
like a part of standard GCC and bug reports should be directed to the
public GCC GNATS database, not to a company internal system.  I have
therefore added a GNATS category "ada" to the GCC GNATS database (on the
assumption that, at least initially, there is no need for a finer
classification of Ada-related bug reports into front end / library / tools
/ ..., but that Ada does merit its own category).  If bug reports in this
category should go to, *in addition* to the public GCC
database and mailing lists, then GNATS can be set up to send them there
(similarly to how Java bug reports go to java-prs as well as gcc-bugs and
gcc-prs) - as long as that address doesn't have an autoresponder set up in
a way that would confuse GNATS or cause mail loops.

I will attend to updating and gnats.html for the new category,
but one of the Ada maintainers should deal with making that front end give
bug reporting instructions more appropriate to a free software project
developed in a bazaar fashion (as GCC is, whether or not you expect much
public contribution to the Ada parts of GCC) than the above instructions
for customers with support contracts.
