Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Updates from the Automated Error Reporting

Thank you Szymon. Regarding abbreviating the exception names: can you open a feature request at [1] and post the link here?
We abbreviate exceptions for space reasons and in many cases it works well IMHO - or can be learned quickly (as NPE). 
But if a sufficient number of people support this we will reconsider this decision (as done before by switching to Mylyn notifications instead of using normal dialogs).

Thank you,

Hi Marcel,

If I may, I'd like to propose one enhancement to the error reporting tool:
avoid abbreviating exceptions. I have come across different bugs that said
"RE in SomeClass.someMethod" but the RE term was not consistent. It was
either RuntimeException or ResourceException. Abbreviations like NPE are
well-known and don't complicate the thing, but abbreviations like SISPSIE,
NCDFE, LLTE, BPCE, SDRME and a few others are not obvious (well, at least
for me). Would it be possible to use the full name of the exception instead
of its abbreviation?

Other than that, I love it and look forward to more! :)
