Hi! Yeah, basically I wanted to follow up on the mailing list after I get some docs in, but you found this earlier :)

The good thing about Clangd (from my perspective) is that as long as the plugin has LSP integration, users are free to use whatever plugin they want (also, YCM decided <https://github.com/Valloric/ycmd/issues/515> that LSP support is out of the scope of their project).

I am personally using LanguageClient-neovim almost all the time and I certainly had the best experience out of every other plugin/workflow I tried so far (although, as you can see, the setup is not trivial and there are actually few downsides of the LanguageClient-neovim). The other thing is that I'm using NeoVim and while I have tried this setup for the "plain" Vim I don't have too much user experience from that perspective yet, but most of my team members use Vim and we're currently looking into that.
