Re: [ide-dev] Survey results

If we create lots of surveys (every 2-3 weeks) users will get tired of answering them. For the additional JDT settings the JDT team has created a bug to discuss implications of these settings, it sounds like they need to solve a few things before they can change defaults. See Stephan's email for the Bug number.

Best regards, Lars

I'm tired of debating. Another survey is probably a good way to make all of us agreeing on something.

We need to define rules before the survey this time ;)
So we write a preamble telling that given the outcome of previous survey, we need more fine-grained answers and reminding that warnings can be overridden at workspace-level and project-level, we remind them that they can see warnings in action by setting their preferences, then we list all available JDT warnings and we ask users whether they want each one ignore/warning. The majority wins without further discussion and the most answered setting for each warning becomes a default in EPP.
Does that sound good to everyone?

I have the impression that creating another survey is a good thing. If we can continuously get 2500 votes every 2-3 weeks, let's just keep on doing a survey whenever we feel it's necessary.
It now looks like this ide-dev mailing-list is responsible of defining surveys targeting IDE users and change preferences according to the outcome. That's some concrete action!
