Ok. Thanks for trying. Please remove Sapphire from the error reporting tool. The data thatâs collected is not actionable.

Subject: Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Error reporter and third-party code
I presented AERI to the board of directors at EclipseCon Europe last week. I also discussed with EMO whether there is a way that Eclipse would extend its current scope and start collecting error reports on behalf of others (member companies or other third parties). We came to the conclusion that the Eclipse Foundation will not collect error reports on behalf of other plug-in providers in foreseeable future. The risk that sensitive data might get shared is too high in such an uncontrolled environment and setting up a secured system that can handle this, the legal work this requires etc. is currently out of scope.
But the Foundation is open to extensions to the error reporting client which allow users to share errors with arbitrary (e.g., your own or other centralized) data end-points.
I have filled out the survey, but I do want to stress one point that I think got missed in all the discussionâ
Doing something about auto-censored stack frames is not entirely for third-party benefit. It is statistically improbably that all of the errors with third-party frames are caused by third-party code, yet all that Iâve seen collected for Sapphire are non-actionable in their current censored form. As such, we are losing on an opportunity to improve eclipse.org code as well as third-party code.
While we ponder broader process and infrastructure improvements
To follow up on this part: So far only a few actively discussed this request. To me, and likely to others, itâs hard to say who really is interested in extending the scope of the error reporting and whether itâs worth taking this to the board of directors now.
If you (and others on this list) have a couple of minutes, please cast your voice at this short form .
