The org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder with
the new jdt core is in the patched_361builder branch of /cvsroot/eclipse
and tagged as r36x_v20110209. I'm running a test build with this
new builder and will schedule a rebuild for later today.

Request approval to fix bug 336544 for 3.6.2.
We've discussed this at today's PMC call: given the
severity of the
problem, we will provide a patched 3.6.1 base builder and do another
Eclipse SDK build with the new builder.

Does this have an impact on software being built at Eclipse ... in other
words, should the Helios SR2 train make sure that they use a Platform
3.6.2 Basebuilder such that the compiler generates correct code ?

+1. This is really bad and the fix is not risky.

A bad bug has been discovered which has an impact at runtime. The compiler
is tagging some statement as dead code and therefore optimize them out
the code generation. This is related to a bogus diagnosis for null
A fix is ready and has been released for 3.7M6.
We request approval to release it for 3.6.2 as well.
