Mike, anyone is welcome to suggest improvements
in Eclipse -- even the Eclipse Foundation :)
In case you're not aware, the current
content is in CVS
All your suggestions sound good to me
... just what ever you do, don't make it look like other, existing update
In all seriousness, this is just the
sort of thing "Callisto" should do, IMHO ... look for issues,
inconsistencies, and set a good
example for others to follow.

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:
page set user expectations about the level of integration and the amount
of work left (e.g. set expectations down a bit)
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.
page had a standard www.eclipse.org
look and feel.
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 eclipse.org 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. _______________________________________________
