No worries! :)

clang-tools is a meta package. It will point to the "recommended" version of clang
and install the symlink.

bravo for finding the exact place :)

> 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?
I did it for you and uploaded it in Debian experimental already.


Should be also live on https://apt.llvm.org/ in the next few hours!
