Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] The "new user -> ECA -> signed-off by" workflow is broken

We at Xtext see a similar result, especially with changes done via github web.
Telling people to clone and signoff for a trivial fix often leads to omitting the PR
and recreate the change ourselves.

  1. ay: You did not sign the ECA.
  2. 21% of the contributors are confused or don't care and drop off. They say: You merge it for me (which we can't do because it is not our code.)
  3. The rest goes to the website to sign the ECA.
  4. It turns out you need to create an Eclipse account first, so another 53% does not bother. Why is this? People have a Github account; can't we work with that?
  5. The ones left make another change in their PR because that is the only way to retrigger the checks
  6. Eclipse checks say "no signed-off by" footer in the commit message. This is not needed because all information is already in the commit. IT MAKES NO SENSE!!!
  7. So the contributor has to REDO ALL THE COMMITS IN THE PR unless they are some git wizard that can update each commit comment: 25% says "Nah."
1% left of the 77% we still have after step 3
