RE: [platform-ui-dev] Recombine Problems and Tasks Views

My 2 cents,

For this kind of voting to be really successful, Eclipse should be equipped with a

special "Feedback" button. When clicked, up pops a dialog with a few questions
and a feedback area. When you press OK, feedback is sent to the Eclipse feedback
server. Results are collected automatically. 1 cent.

Bugs should be dealt with similarly (having a special "Bug" button somewhere in the UI).
Another penny.
