I remember in the past, as an Eclipse user, looking at the New and
Noteworthy document for each milestone with glee. It was something to
anticipate when each Eclipse milestone was released... you thought to
yourself, what cool stuff will be in this milestone?
Now, as an Eclipse committer, I'm on the side of generating some of
these New and Noteworthy items. I have created a bug requesting that a
new keyword be added to bugzilla called noteworthy. The purpose of this
keyword is three-fold:
* Make it easier for committers to tag what items they think are
noteworthy. A common workflow for committers towards the end of a
release is to scan the bugs fixed and pick and choose noteworthy items.
I think we can improve this.
* In the best interest of transparency, our users (and even our
committers) would like to see where noteworthy items come from and to be
easy to query what's new would be great.
* For people like the EMF team who like to automatically generate
release notes with each release, this can be a way to mark specific bugs
as noteworthy ones.
So, if you're a committer or even a user who think this would be useful,
please comment on the bug. If you're a committer on a project that
doesn't publish these new and noteworthy type of documents, I highly
recommend it as it's something your consumers may enjoy to read.
