Re: [ide-dev] A new survey


This has been discussed since 2004.

I certainly would be interested in such a scope. Back in the days I thought of a "system" scope (like /etc/eclipse). But ~/.eclipse would be a great start. Having such a scope in Equinox would help for some RCP use cases. 

Yes, adoption within the IDE is a separate topic. That's probably the reason why the discussion is not progressing. It's too much work to rework all the existing preferences. Oomph is a different approach but solves the problem in the IDE for me now.

If there is no reasonable interest in offering such a scope in the platform, that’s fine.
