> The answer https://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/dcrup/current/msg00502.html contains: “if the spec says there's a pure version that doesn't hash its input, the libraries would implement it”.

GnuTLS implements the standardized version of EdDSA, which is the pure version as defined in [RFC8410](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8410). The pure version can only hash data, and cannot sign an existing hash.

The version which can sign arbitrary hashes is called pre-hashed-EdDSA and has not been standardized (at least not in the RFC above).
