Re: [ide-dev] 10 ideas to improve Eclipse IDE usability

Additionally, number 8 "Stop showing nonsense warning and suggestion" tends
to come up again and again.

Instead of discussing for the umpteenth time which errors/warnings should be
on or off by default, I suggest a default quickfix for all problem markers
(where applicable) that just disables that marker type in the preferences.
This would let people easily get to their comfortable level of warnings and
it would eliminate the need to hunt down the specific preference controlling
a certain marker.
That's probably the best idea I've heard so far regarding Warning/Error reports!
Even just showing a link on the warning pop-up to the Project/Workspace preference page to customize warning would be a very good thing.

I would file a bug, but I'm not sure for which component. Would this be
something that every marker contributor (e.g. CDT or JDT) had to do on their
own? Or is it something that the Platform can provide?
Cf Gunnar answer. It has to be implemented once per *DT project.
