Requirements

Use Cases That Must Be Covered

History

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.
