Ah. The doc for 'make-obsolete' says the byte compiler warns about it,
_not_ that executing warns. That's pretty useless. I'll add an explicit
warning message when executed.

This indicates that something is loading/requiring 'ada-xref', which is
not in 7.0.1. You should find and delete that.

ada-mode 4.0 is deleted in master, but that won't show up until emacs 27.

ELPA ada-mode used to have a "dummy" ada-xref.el to hide the core one;
clearly I deleted that too soon. I'll put it back; it will have to stay
until I drop support for emacs 26.

Attached are ada-xref.el, ada-stmt.el, ada-prj.el; put them in the
ada-mode-7.0.1 directory. Note that they display a message when loaded.

Could be.

*code-conversion-work* is not related to ada-mode.

Most likely the problem is a version conflict; you may not have
ada_mode_wisi_lr1_parse from 7.0.1 installed, or it is not first on
PATH. The version the elisp is expecting is given by
wisi-process-parse-protocol-version and
ada-wisi-language-protocol-version. The executable will print its
version when executed from the command line; quit with "004quit" (or C-c).

What happens when you explicitly invoke M-x wisi-parse-buffer indent? If
you get no explicit error from that, do C-c C-f (Ada | Misc | Show last
parse error). Also look in the *Ada_wisi_parse* buffer; the first line
has the parse command, which should mention the buffer name. Is there
any mention of an exception, or an error?
