Only Buildship users that have launched at least one Gradle task from the Tasks View may be affected. And, even then, only two users have reported a problem with the workspace prompt so far.
Please note that we introduced the call to bundle.start() on June 6th. Since then, Buildship has been downloaded about 10’000 times, but only 2 people reported a problem with the workspace prompt (if that serves as any kind of indication).
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.
