Hi,

when I try to update Mylyn I get an error message telling me that Mylyn
Bridge: PDE, CVS and Ant requires the Bugzilla Connector. Now, since I'm
not using Bugzilla I don't really want to install it, and I don't
understand why it should be required.
I couldn't find any documentation or discussion on that issue. I also
didn't really find any documentation what precisely the individual
bridges do, so if someone can point me in the right direction I'd be
ever so grateful :-)

Jochen

If installing the Bugzilla Connector solves your issue I would just install it.
At least you could use it to report this issue as a bug in Eclipse Bugzilla repository ;-)

I am sure that someone from Miks team will answer _why_ it is required.
But it is a good idea to have it; reporting and tracking any kind of Eclipse related bugs
gets soo easy.

Basically the bridges connect parts of the Eclipse functionality (e.g. Ant, CVS, JDE)
with Mylyn, while the connectors connect issue tracking systems. E.g. if you use the CDT
to develop C and C++ with Eclipse, you would like to have a CDT brigde for Mylyn to use
all the context tracking for your C++ files. (Actually, such a bridge is still in development,
so you would lack essential Mylyn support for now.)

Cheers, Jörg

Hey Jörg,

thanks for the reply. Installing the connector seems to resolve the
problem.
Now I'll wait if there is an explanation why this is necessary. if non
comes, I'll find out how to use the newly installed connector to report
a bug ;-)

The "Mylyn Bridge: PDE, CVS and Ant" feature
(org.eclipse.mylyn.pde-feature) currently include the following plugins

org.eclipse.mylyn.ide.ant
org.eclipse.mylyn.team.cvs
org.eclipse.mylyn.team.ui
org.eclipse.mylyn.pde.ui
org.eclipse.mylyn.bugzilla.ide

This feature been primarily designed for EPP packaging and includes
integrations for the core Platform components, such as CVS, PDE and Ant
and as Jörg said, Bugzilla integration is included into this list
primarily to allow to use Mylyn to report bugs back to Eclipse, so it
includes preconfigured repository template for Eclipse Bugzilla and also
allow to create new bug reports from entries in the Error Log view.

Discussion about EPP packaging was on a bug 187154

As Eugene already explained the PDE feature depends on Bugzilla to support
integrated bug reporting. We are planning to review this dependency for
Mylyn 3.0. I have added a comment to the corresponding bug report:
