Re: [ide-dev] Fixing the Target platform editor

Thanks to all for your responses.

It's good to understand what the aim & scope of it is (+ the bug number!). Also to learn more about TPD integration issues, as well as POM-first related issues.

As mentioned the current target platform is horrendous so really glad for solutions that can address this out-of-the-box. Happy to help out where I can. Really a reasonably reliable target platform editor is all I want for Christmas (I hear Father Christmas wears a red hat, maybe there's some truth in that after all...)

Awesome, thanks Sopot. Can¹t wait to see how it turns out.

And, yes, we spend too much time on fighting old fights that aren¹t even
fights any more.
