Is there any thought from the Web Tools Committers in participating in
Eclipse Bug Day?

Quite a lot of thought, actually :)

For those not in the know, a "Bug Day" is a day when we the
developers pause for a moment and take a fresh look at our bug
backlog. For the larger community it's a chance to help triage bugs
by sorting out which ones are still problems, or even just
identifying the ones that need more information. Unless there's
enough information in the bug to help developers reproduce the
problem, it can't truly be fixed. For anyone who wants to get into
the development of an Eclipse project, it's also a great time to
submit a patch and get feedback from the committers within the bug
itself or through other avenues such as IRC. However you
participate, it's a chance for the committers to remember that we
can't make our projects their best without the help of the
community, and for the community to help us scratch whatever has
been itching them.

As of right now, two committers have signed up to be contacts for
the project, and I wouldn't rule out there being more before the day
itself arrives. Although the list of designated bugs is very short
at the moment (we stand at a grand total of 1 so far), we're hoping
to have more bugs to suggest by this Friday. As has been pointed
out elsewhere, the first day is largely an experiment. Are you
volunteering to triage or work on a bug and help make it a success?

I've submitted several patches for several XML, XSD, and WSDL related
issues, that are still at outstanding. I'm monitoring about 38 XML,
XSD, and WSDL bugs at the moment that will affect the users that I'll be
deploying too. So yeah, I'm volunteerng to help triage or review the
patches that I have already submitted. My focus, is on the XML related
tools, as they seem to get the least amount of attention compared to the
JEE and JST tools.

Excellent! One of the things we'll be doing, Source Editing in
particular, is looking at those patches. We've been gifted with a
good number of them, and it's long past time to give them their due.

I've reviewed the bugs marked for bugday that are XML, XSD, and WSDL
related, and actually I'm kinda of disappointed with the selection
compared to the JST and related bugday selections. I know there are
many many many, long outstanding bugs that exist in this section that
need triage work just to make sure they are still valid. In my Mylyn
task bug list that I watch, I have at least 38 bugs that affect my users
that should be addressed.

I have no problem helping to triage some of these, but I think overall
WTP in general should concentrate early milestones or 2.0.1 release to
address several of these issues. Enhancements are fun to create, but if
basic bugs aren't addressed it actually allows the tools to be
non-compliant or inter operable with other tools on the market.

Any thought of adding some these outstanding bugs that need to be
triaged to the list. I'm willing to help triage them to see if they
are even still valid bugs, or can be closed.
