Thanks Mylyn

On my way to the Equinox Summit with a 160 minute layover in Chicago, I was hacking a bug to add execution environment selection and validation to PDE (thanks Gary) when I noticed this in a recent build of Mylyn:

Thanks Mylyn! I was waiting for the ability to edit those Bugzilla keywords. Now we just need to figure out how to work with bugzilla flags without me opening a web browser.

By the way, if you haven’t tried out Mylyn, I’d recommend it. It has some nifty features that I can’t live without these days:

  • offline bugzilla browsing while on an airplane
  • ability to attach contexts to bugs to help new contributors navigate the PDE codebase
  • ability to apply patches from within Eclipse without opening a silly web browser
  • somewhat easy screenshot attachment to bugs
