+Sylvestre, who appears to maintain clang/llvm packages for debian.

Oh, good catch! I was looking at the clang-tools package, not clang-tools-N.
(I don't really understand debian packaging, in case it wasn't obvious!)

It's named /usr/bin/clangd-7, though. Would be nice to have a

I guess there's some packaging magic needed to get that symlink...
Seems to be here:

Sylvestre: Do we have that right? If we want a clangd symlink for the next
clang-tools release, should I add one line to "rules" and send you a GitLab
merge requsest?

(Sorry for the noise, or if there's a better venue)
Cheers, Sam
