Q & A

Please add questions for the Q&A session
Questions for the Community Day. (Please add your name against your question)

  1. What is the E4 story: Vision and plans for the nearest years? (Alexander Fedorov)
  2. How to measure and visualize the grade of effort invested to the Eclipse project improvements by non-funded committers and contributors? (Alexander Fedorov)
  3. What is the best way to add a new feature for which no Bugzilla exists? (a) create a bug and discuss first if the feature is wanted? (b) implement the feature and create a bug + gerrit change all at once? or (c) implement the feature standalone in my own github and approach the project owners whether it is a valuable addition? - Also: is there a common understanding of this? Or does every project have different opinions on this (Platform vs. JDT vs. others)?
