I think the
accelerators are nice to have.
The logs are only at
startup right? I personally think it is ok.
Also, is this problem
for 4.2 or only 3.8? If it is only for 3.8, it is even less
of an annoyance.
my 2 cents
I recently added a feature to use key modifiers when
double-clicking on editor gutter to edit properties or
enable/disable breakpoints (see Bug 360588).
As part of the feature I the accelerator text to the popup menu
e.g. "Toggle Breakpoint Enable Shift+Double Click". Unfortunately
the accelerator text trips up a legacy accelerator logic which
tries to parse the label of the menu item. This logic logs
a warning if -debug option is specified when launching the
IDE (see Bug 374153
IMO, the benefit of seeing this accelerator in menu is worth the
tradeoff of the warning. Platform has a stricter standard so
they will not accept this tradeoff, but I can still make it work
for CDT only unless the community objects.
Opinions (I'll take silence as sign of approval)?
