There is both a Linux C mailing list and a Linux C++ one. I guess these
would be good.

Hmmm, how about adding some special hooks for debugging of fullscreen
(DGA etc) games? Perhaps scripted debugging runs ("run until breakpoint 1,
then continue step by step, always outputting current position in the
source plus the values of vars x, y, z. Do that until breakpoint 2, then
exit.") with output to a log file and the possibility to "simulate" that
debug run in the debugger afterwards?

Linking + adding some news item would be good IMHO.
