Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Eclipse Mars 1 RC4 issue with Buildship / workspace prompt

I commented on the linked bug and currently strongly disagree with David’s opinion.

If every Eclipse user using the Java, Java EE, or RCP/RAP EPP Package is affected by this, then its no doubt a blocker. 
Then, I vote for a rebuild (and if necessary for postponing the release if necessary - just to make clear how strong I feel about it).

If not every Java, Java EE, or RCP/RAP EPP Package user is affected by it, I’d like to understand when this issue occurs - and when it doesn’t.

Follow-ups in Bugzilla.

My favourite NetBeans troll couldn't miss this opportunity
Tha and my regular chats with various IDE users (I spend a few hours monthly trying to convince IntelliJ and NetBeans users that Eclipse IDE isn't that bad)  make me feel that this issue is "reputation busting embarrassing".  At least, I don't know how I could keep on evangelizing about Eclipse IDE if our community is OK to ship a major bug in a high visible project to its users.
The bar of quality expectation has raised, IntelliJ and NetBeans are doing a great job, shipping applications that seem mostly bug-free. If we want Eclipse IDE to stay relevant we cannot ship applications with a critical bug.
