thank you for mentioning lsp.
I did not know that it is that feature rich so I will definitely give it
a try.
When it does not convince me to be a proper replacement I will keep
packaging irony-mode.
The "source" part will be gone when I pick up the tips from Pierre:

It was just an attempt to show that both packages use the same source.

For now I will stop working on irony-mode and maybe pick it up at a later
Also I do not know how many other people are using irony-mode so maybe
it's just me and packaging it is pointless anyway.
