Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Updates on Automated Error Reporting: Started with Mars M2

Thanks David.

True. Although useful, it's a different use case than I’m currently heading for (finding problematic locations in code).
If we’d add this it would require some person reviewing those items and/or needs code to be written especially for that purpose.

If you are interested in getting those error messages (say, by mail or send to some web url / cgi script under your control) - let me know.
I’d be glad to send those reports to you to build your specialized reports.

(In the past, when I open bugs on invalid ones, projects were very slow to fix, if they fixed at all.)
