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

+1, this is a great idea. Projects following along will conform. Others we can encourage, like we recently did about Pydev's awful dialog on startup. I think a lot of it isn't wanting to keep bad workflows, just not realizing that they're workflows are bad.

I'm finding the same with the Dark theme. It's going to take a long time to get all the tooling plug-ins inside and out of Eclipse to provide colors for it. But if we provide guidelines and instructions on how to apply them, I think that would be a big help.

I also have a personal Jenkins job that creates a product with all the IDE components I'm interested in, just to see how they all work together. You really get to see the inconsistencies when you do that, but at least they're front and center and we can start working on cleaning them up.

Making it component specific will never work; new projects will always take time to conform.
It will work for projects who want to conform. Other ones are free to keep bad UI workflows ;)
