|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] [aeri] Change to how clients decide which error reports to send|
A standard UUID. We generate it once per user-home. We use that information to allow searches like “Give me all error reports ±5 minutes around this error report” or to collect how many users actually hit a problem (to assess its severity) etc.
I used this to illustrate when (I think) sending a fingerprint may reveal some information about the user.
This is not required. It was more an example to illustrate when sending a fingerprint may reveal something about the reporter. The question is, whether this pair <reporter-id, error-fingerprint> is considered sensitive already.
Yes and no. You opt in to send error reports w/ a uuid when you enable AERI (announced and implemented so from day one).
FWIW, there is a change in progress that allows users to generate a fresh UUID on every eclipse startup.
Does that answer all your questions?
