Thanks. Honestly, you guys at eclipse are doing great work!|
This experience is from other Eclipse projects and 100% personal, subjective and non-representative:
The guys from JDT and Oomph are extremely responsive, constructive, helpful and fast.
I had bad experiences, too, but don't want to mention the project names here.
To avoid any misunderstandings: It's not about Scout.
Just want to also note, that when searching bugs at eclipse, using and
you'll get around 10'000 with last change between 2003-2009 and roughly another 10'000 for each year thereafter,
making it around 70'000 unresolved new bugs in total, that have not been touched in a while.
Of course, some of those either do not apply anymore due to changes and fixes done elsewhere.
And many of these issues might be very low profile, however, how to find the important ones?
If you would spend just 1min to check each one, you talk about an effort of more than half a year for a single person.
It might qualify as torture to assign such a boring task to someone.
Good luck catching the most critical needles in the haystack.
