Description Olivier Huber 2013-03-07 10:27:36 UTC
A gdbinit file is distributed in the python tarball, to ease debugging of python stuff with gdb. See for more info.
It would be nice to install this file in Gentoo.

Thank you !

From you link: (*) If you have gdb 7 it includes the ability to debug Python without the need for python gdb macros. 
Gentoo has stable gdb-7, so I think this file is unnecessary.
