Re: [pdt-dev] Pushing project forward
Long time user, first (or maybe not) poster.
PDT is a critical project for me because it remains one of, if
not the only, fully free and open source PHP-focused IDEs out
there and it really covers a huge swath of features on top of all
the advantages that come from the Eclipse ecosystem as well.
I don't think I'm qualified enough to comment on points 1–4 as I
think this is more for the developers/maintainers to comment on on
decide, but as to the move to a more accessible and visible
issue/bug tracker, I would support that and it would probably get
more folks involved in issuing and triaging bugs if a more family
Github or Gitlab interface was available.
While I don't like supporting proprietary systems, the network
effects of Github are tough to deny. If the team can sustain a
hybrid approach of both the Eclipse Gitlab as well as a public
Github project and manage issues between the two (maybe consider
Gitlab canonical but accept issues on Github) I think you'll get a
lore more overall involvement.
These are just my thoughts as a developer over the past 16 years
and also a user of PDT since I knew about it.

Validation and PHP model : as I wrote earlier I think we should
abandon some DLTK features and implement own model and
inferencer. Without this upcoming PHP 8 will be extremely hard
to implement in efficient way.

Eclipse Bugzilla/Gerrit/GIT/Jenkins infrastructure but most of
our users probably prefer GitHub or GitLab. I think we should
consider switching to GitHub or upcoming Eclipse GitLab
what you think? Commiters, contributors, users, adopters?
