What constitutes a great fix? Take a look at [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/buglist.cgi?query_format=advanced&short_desc_type=allwordssubstr&short_desc=&long_desc_type=allwordssubstr&long_desc=&bug_file_loc_type=allwordssubstr&bug_file_loc=&status_whiteboard_type=allwordssubstr&status_whiteboard=&keywords_type=allwords&keywords=greatbug&emailtype1=substring&email1=&emailtype2=substring&email2=&bugidtype=include&bug_id=&votes=&chfieldfrom=&chfieldto=Now&chfieldvalue=&cmdtype=doit&order=Reuse+same+sort+as+last+time&field0-0-0=noop&type0-0-0=noop&value0-0-0= the list] and see for yourself some examples of what the developers think are great fixes. Roughly speaking, we’re looking for bugs that affect one of the [[Mars]] projects that has a significant impact on the community (e.g. something in the Platform that impacts many extenders, or something to do with the integration of two or more different projects).

+
What's at stake? Why the future of the developer's platform, of course! More seriously, there will be prizes. More later.
+
 
+
=Anatomy of a Great Fix=
+
* Detailed discussion via bug comments
+
* Code contribution via the mechanism described by the project (e.g. Gerrit)
+
** Code conforms to the the style prescribed by the project
+
** Updates and additions to unit tests included
+
 
+
=Where do I start?=
+
Identify a great bug that needs a great fix, e.g.:
+
* [[Platform UI/Plan/4.5/Planning Bugs|Eclipse Platform 4.5 Planning Bugs]]
+
* [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=REOPENED&chfield=%5BBug%20creation%5D&chfieldfrom=2014-07-01&chfieldto=Now&keywords=helpwanted%2C%20&keywords_type=allwords&list_id=10864665&query_format=advanced "Help wanted" bugs created since the Luna release]
+
 
+
Sort out how to contribute, e.g.:
+
* [[Platform UI/How to Contribute|How to Contribute to the Platform UI Project]]
+
 
+
Contribute!
+
 
+
=Process=
+
{{Warning|Work in progress}}
+
 
+
* Host regular (monthly) "bug day" leading up to the Mars release
+
* Project committers will mark bugs they deem worthy with the "greatfix" keyword
+
* "Developer Platform Vision" committee will rank the "greatfix" bugs
+
* Winners will be announced on Mars GA day!
+
* Prizes are awarded to both the contributor and the committer (accepting fixes is hard work too!)
