Thanks Google!Given the recently raised news concerning 4.2's performance, and the loss of testing hardware previously provided by some member companies, Google's Open Source Programs Office is sending the Eclipse Foundation a donation of $20,000 to purchase hardware and begin building a common testing lab.
I think it would be interesting to spend some of this generous donation in a machine Code Quality Analysis. Tools such as Sonar provide very high-value feedback on code and help to spot defects and performance anti-patterns. It's probably one of the tools to set up at Eclipse that would provide the best Return On Investment.Some of this donation may also be used to support the common build infrastructure, subject to Denis Roy's and Mike Milinkovich's discretion.
This should also be one of the topics to be discussed as part of CBI.
For the record, here is the ticket requesting Sonar @Eclipse https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=360935
