Re: [ide-dev] Inconsistent Eclipse user experience
Well it feels like something that could be a very useful service for the community and ecosystem. But it also looks like a significant undertaking. Could we plan on talking about this with all interested parties at EclipseCon?

At first, I’m thinking about a service that may solve some trouble and pain points in/with Eclipse.
If the foundation wouldn’t host such a service I’d do it outside Eclipse. So the answer is: whatever you prefer.
Hope that answers your question

I'm also thinking about sharing common „preference profiles“ developers may use in their IDE and a couple things more.
