Disabling oomph rules inherited from the project [message #1726968] Thu, 17 March 2016 19:19 Go to next message

I've been using an oomph workspace created for the JDT install. Each time on startup, it changes a bunch of project settings (the PREF_STRICTLY_COMPATIBLE_JRE preference) which create outgoing changes in my git repsoitory.

Is there any way to use my user or workspace setup files to suppress these rules that are coming in from the project setup (without disabling oomph entirely on startup)?

Stefan,

There were bunch of projects with this option set to error that will
have errors unless the contributor has a whole whack of different JREs
installed. Perhaps that's changed now and we can just remove them.
Note that you should be looking to maintain the Platform.setup somewhere
in the Platform project so you can add or remove what you need without
asking. In the meantime, you can contribute patches to remove the
project-specific preference tasks for the ones that are no longer needed.

Oh yes. I'm aware of that, but I'm one of the users who went to the trouble of installing a whole whack of different JREs in order to make the errors go away. So are most of the JDT committers - and for those of us that did, we need a way to opt out of the oomph rule that keeps flipping the preference. It seems reasonable for Oomph to flip the preference by default so that not everyone needs to install the JREs. I'm looking for a way for the end-user to opt out, not making a request to change the default. Does such a thing exist?

I think I've already extracted all the platform setup files that I have commit rights for. The root one should probably be owned by the platform releng project, which I'm not a committer on.
