Use Cases That Must Be Covered


For EclipseCon 2004 and 2005 and Eclipse Summit Europe 2006 and 2007, we used email submissions. For EclipseCon 2006 and 2007, we used a customized bugzilla written by a contractor for a submission system. For EclipseCon 2008, we used a custom php program written by a contractor.

Using emails has many problems, not the least of which are that it does not provide visibility to the authors and that it is a huge amount of administrative drudge work. The bugzilla system was pretty good because the developers are familiar with bugzilla, but our increasingly different (non-bug) workflow required an increasing number of customizations. The custom php program was started with great hopes (new! improved!) but the contractor was unable to deliver.
