Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] JFace Generics

Clearly this is a very sensitive issue. It's probably going to take us years to get over our history. And as an open community, we're not always going to agree. But let's keep the discussion technical. I think that'll really help move us forward.

And to that end, I think Ed Merks raises a great point about whether this change really helps us in the end. Doing it in a topic branch will definitely get us that information as we try to use the new APIs in an experimental fashion.

I think I've clearly expressed at what quality stage I expect the overall community to be involved.

Yes, if the goal was to foster the "I hate Eclipse" mentality.

The same effect could (should!) have easily been achieved by actually *using* the "new APIs" in the platform.

To you...

I'm speechless!
