Re: [ide-dev] Inconsistent Eclipse user experience

Eclipse Foundation, would you support/host a service that collects/shares error logs (basically that’s what it is)?


I am not sure if I understand the requirement well enough to say yea or nay. My initial reaction is that the error reporting client that would go into the packages is the easy part. The hard part is building and maintaining the knowledge base that gives users some sort of useful guidance about the errors they're experiencing. Does anyone know if Mozilla's implementation of this stuff is open source? Is there anything there that we could leverage? Given that they're open source and they use Bugzilla, maybe there is something there that could help.

Could I suggest that a bug be opened (pls add me to the cc) and that you talk with Wayne and Denis at EclipseCon about the requirement. Denis in particular is well known to be easily swayed after the 7th beer.

The Eclipse Foundation is pretty happy to offer services that will help the community. If this is something that could help both users and committers, that does seem like a big win.
