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

I know that it doesn’t, but one of the persistent questions on my mind is “why not”. We don’t look to community to setup Bugzilla or to provide IP due diligence, so why do we expect the community to manage the release train? Automated usage data collection or similar surveys are also not going to get very far as a community project.


These type of common good projects should not conflict with Foundation’s charter, so if it’s a question of funding, let’s have that discussion.

That seems to be an odd statement, given that the Eclipse Foundation does not manage the release train, nor do we interact with the community on behalf of specific projects. At least not in the ways necessary to be responsive to their needs.


All the discussions that I have seen are either about being more responsive to the community (faster release train) or better understanding the community. This is exactly the type of the common good that Eclipse Foundation can and should help with.
