Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Limiting GTK versions supported by SWT or SWT call for help

I see in the target environments that Eclipse 4.5 supports SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 which only has 2.14 according to the package list.
Who decides of this list of supported environment? If no-one is ready or willing to make the necessary efforts to support SUSE and its old GTK 2.14, why not simply stop promoting it as supported ?
Also, how would Eclipse fail with a too old GTK ? If it fails with a nice error in a pop-up or in console saying "Sorry, you need at least GTK 2.18 to use SWT and Eclipse", then people know the reason of the error and can react accordingly.
