Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Preferences (topic was touched in "Eclipse smells kind of dead" thread)

Does it make sense to try and line up some of these "commons" issues to be addressed during code sprints/hackathons at EclipseCon?

Is there value in getting a diverse collection of committers into a room together to work on a solution to the Preferences issue being discussed? Or is the problem too big to address with a couple of days of focused effort? Are there other problems that might be addressed instead?

I'm thinking that a regular hackathon with at least a stream focused on commons issues might be a good way to draw in additional contributors and generally improve communication between the teams.

You are right. I'm in that same situation. But I'm not sure the Foundation has the resources either.

That's why we need to grow the contributor community. The more hands we have on deck the more we can do this kind of analysis and planning and get things done.

My answer: It's something I expect the PMC to provide. Which PMC that is, is being discussed on another thread somewhere.
The issue with this approach is that the PMC is made of contributors who already have job to do at their company + some leadership to provide in the Eclipse community. Does the PMC really have time to do this task correctly? IMHO, the PMC should be the first consumer of such reports, not the provider.
