Re: [ide-dev] Survey results

I’m with Ian, 65% isn’t large enough. We lay lose credibility with those 65%, but that’s only 1400 people out of the millions that use Eclipse.

Which is actually another point, the response size is pretty small. I’m not sure we can conclude anything based on that.

And my final point? Someone suggested the JDT team take care of the change of preferences. I’d suggest we are all members of the JDT team. Any one of us could make the change.

Same on my side (I agree with Mickael and Sopot). I personally voted against the change for more compiler warnings, but if we ask people to vote and than ignore the majority, we loose credibility in the community.

Best regards, Lars

I agree with Mickael. Those 65 % now are expecting the change and if it is not there in Luna it's a huge credibility hit. If I had voted for 'Yes' (which I didn't) I'd have this revolting thought of 'Why did they do the survey anyway?' and would have really low probability of answering the next time.

If you implement that change it will definitely annoy this minority.
And what about the majority?

Also, due to the nature of the change, my assumption is that a subset of people that said ‘yes’ did not appreciate the impact of the change so when it is implemented they will wish they had voted ‘no’.
We've all reworked the question several times to make it explicit. I thought we've agreed the question was good enough so that we could trust the outcome of the survey and turn it into a concrete action (Yes or No to all warnings). Why deciding to almost ignore the vote now? Or why even asking the question if it's to ignore 65% of "Yes" ?

65% of people have expressed they'd like all warnings. We've discussed that the survey and reaction to results would also be a way to encourage the community to give feedback. I think letting 35% of community decide of everything is not fair at all.
