Hey,

I got a weird Eclipse error message "Unsupported Endoding: REMOVE_PREFERENCE_MARKER". When I check the workspace preferences page, indeed, workspace encoding is set to "REMOVE_PREFERENCE_MARKER". I wonder where this bogus value comes from, and check the oomph user setup, which contains among others:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<setup:CompoundTask
xmi:version="2.0"
xmlns:xmi="http://www.omg.org/XMI"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:setup="http://www.eclipse.org/oomph/setup/1.0"
name="org.eclipse.core.resources">
<setupTask
xsi:type="setup:PreferenceTask"
id="sync6"
key="/instance/org.eclipse.core.resources/encoding"
value="REMOVE_PREFERENCE_MARKER"/>
</setup:CompoundTask>

Do you have any clue where this may come from? I remember that I did this: I have recently just changed the workspace encoding preference from default (windows) to UTF-8. The oomph preference recorder asked me to record this into the user setup, I chose to "always ignore". That's all I did I think.

Thanks for help,
Felix

For now I just fix these values by re-recording the preference.

It looks like perhaps you're also syncing preferences with your Eclipse.org user account? Normally this value is a marker for deleted preference and the preference should have been removed from the user.setup. It's not clear what went wrong. But you could open a Bugzilla and we could do further testing to try to reproduce it....

Yes I do sync with eclipse.org. I will do look clearly if I can find a way to reproduce.

I've updated the bug report (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=516566) with information about the possibly problematic code (in: org.eclipse.oomph.setup.ui.recorder.RecorderTransaction)
