|[eclipse.org-planning-council] Request for re-spin on behalf of the MPC project|
Greetings Planning Council. |
The MPC project has uncovered a significant bug. There is discussion below and more in the cited bug.
The TL;DR is that we are hanging a lot of press and potential for good will on the ability to drag and drop features from web pages and the Eclipse Marketplace site, so this really need to work. Further, this feature is important to the Marketplace ecosystem and will have a significant impact on perception of overall usability of Eclipse.
I hereby a request a respin of the simultaneous release on behalf of the Technology PMC.

David, We have found a critical bug in Marketplace Client (MPC) that breaks the drag and drop feature of MPC. Carsten has fixed the bug and a patch is available. https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=470485 Unfortunately, the workarounds are not intuitive from a usability perspective and the drag and drop feature is important for MPC and the overall ecosystem. For instance, we plan to promote the 'early access' Java 9 support through a drag and drop feature. For these reasons, I'd like to request a re-spin of Mars. Is this something I should post on cross-projects or is there another process I should use. Thanks Ian -- Ian Skerrett VP of Marketing Eclipse Foundation (m) 613-240-7210 (o) 613-224-9461 ext 227 (t) @ianskerrett
