Agreed. I'd go further & suggest that in cases like this, where there's
an obvious mistake upstream, we be proactive and fix it. Inelegance is
subjective; this isn't.[0]

Kind regards,



[0]: it would have been correct to write ‘Frontend to <GNU Global>’.
Adding ‘the’ to it would be wrong, since ‘GNU Global’ is a proper noun.

But writing ‘Frontend to <the> GNU Global tagging <system>’ changes the
structure: the object of ‘to’ is now the word ‘system’ and not ‘GNU
Global’. ‘System‘ isn't a proper noun, so it requires an article.
