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