RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] Callisto quality

I think that would help alot.  Also, either that page or the Callisto Bug Hunt page should give a brief description of how and where to enter bugs.  Even for veteran Eclipse developers it can be a daunting task to figure out where to enter bugs in bugzilla when all of Callisto is installed.  The instructions should encourage testers to take their best guess at a product and component, and perhaps mention the Eclipse Community > Callisto component as a default option if they can't figure out where it should go (or for issues that span projects).

RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] Callisto quality

These are good points, and I'm sure that everyone's very happy to hear that bugs are being raised for all of the issues.
If it's OK with everyone, I would like to suggest that we get Nathan Gervais involved to clean up the content and look and feel of the Callisto Discover Site page.
Specifically, I am thinking that it would be nice if:
1.        The page set user expectations about the level of integration and the amount of work left (e.g. set expectations down a bit)
2.        The page pointed everyone to the Callisto Bug Hunt contest and asked that they make every effort to help us out by sending in great bugs.
3.        The page had a standard look and feel.
4.        The page actually used the Callisto graphic.
Is everyone OK with that? How about we ask Nate to do a mock-up and send it around?

Yes, I have been entering bugs for the issues I have seen.  Perhaps the issue here is more about managing expectations.  The announcement on the main page says "Eclipse Callisto RC1 is available".  I think the broader community seeing this announcement may get the mistaken impression (as I did) that this is in fact a release candidate.  If they take the time to download it and very basic tire kicking doesn't work or creates many errors, it may turn people off from trying it further.  I didn't mean to light any fires, I'm sure there is still plenty of time to get things in shape for the release. _______________________________________________
