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

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 sites :)

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.

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. _______________________________________________
