Re: [tycho-dev] Get contributions into 0.16

Hi all,

I'm trying to find out the process to get committers attention on issues
that I think are good to go into 0.16. I tried to set Target Milestone
on bug, but it seems that it is not the appropriate way. For those
issues, I provided patches, that you just have to review, and merge in
case you like them So I send my (short) wish list here:
* Setting by default
-XstartOnFirstThread on Mac. That would save a lot of lines in pom.xml
that are necessary to workaround tycho-surefire-plugin to work on mac
when using UI.

This is on my to do list to review properly, but I did not have the time
yet and most likely won't be able to do in time for 0.16. I generally
try to avoid hardcoded magic strings, especially when there is no way to
disable them, but it may be okay in this particular case. I am not sure
if System.getProperty should be used there either.

* Support source
feature label. This is currently reviewed as -1 by Igor simply because I
used Groovy instead of BeanShell to test plugin. The suggested Groovy
script is way more powerful and verifies more stuff than what previous
BeanShell one did. It's simply better quality. Source features are
widely used, and I'd like to discuss whether a -1 for using Groovy
instead of BeanShell is really fair.

The issue here is long term maintenance of the code. Using beanshell in
some cases and groovy in others introduces technical debt, and even
though this particular case may seem minor and even unfair, unmanaged
technical dept tends to accumulate pretty fast.
