Re: [wtp-dev] adopter usage reports


An adopter report is a list of the WTP code used by an adopter. It is generated by a scanning tool. We use it to limit breakage when we need to change internal code, and to prioritze internal code for promotion to platform API.

See the bottom links on [1] for details on the reports and tools.

What is adopter reports ?
