[cross-project-issues-dev] New PDE error reporting in 4.2m4

Hi all,


Updating to 4.2m4 as my SDK for development, I’m finding myself swamped with tons of new errors such that I can’t compile my code any more.


I do see some value in reporting issues such as version constraints in require-bundle, but …

-          Some messages do not seem appropriate to report as errors (eg exporting an “internal” package with x-friends should not require specifying a version with the package; or, adding additional files to the source build should not be an error).

-          And it should be easier to turn them from “error” to “warning” (which Preference Page item corresponds to what error?)


The effort needed before I can compile my code which has been running fine for years seems not acceptable for me.

For instance, I’d expect a quickfix “convert this error into a warning” with each of the new reports introduced.


Is this already discussed in a bug anywhere ?

What are other projects doing ?
