- what is a reporter id?

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.

Which is a nice metric. I'm wondering if it is as relevant as how ofter the same error has been hit (regardless of user count).

- is the reporter id an "opt-in”?

Yes and no. You opt in to send error reports w/ a uuid when you enable AERI (announced and implemented so from day one).

So it is  opt-in. I don't see any issues then.

FWIW, there is a change in progress that allows users to generate a fresh UUID on every eclipse startup.

off-topic, but doesn't that make the metric mentioned above impossible?
