dupes festival


I'm not sure it's linked to the heatwave that's crossing Europe,
but there is a "duplicates festival", happening right now, in your very
own bug tracker.
Check for any new bug mentioning "New Project", or "Can't save project".
There are many a day. It's almost funny.

Doesn't anybody care to check for duplicates before posting, these days,
or are you all just trying to break a record, without telling me?


Here are my 2 ways to check for duplicates :
(please share your ways of checking for dupes)


way 1 : simple & fast
-



In Mozilla newsgroup reader, there is a field to filter message based on
sender or subject. I use it all the time.

1/ filter on important key words
ex : "save project", "lost focus", "smart completion"

2/ sort by date, descending, and check subjects for dupes.

This works best when you bother to chose a good subject line.


way 2 : slower
-


1/ in the error stacktrace, pick a line that looks unique (close to the
top?), and descriptive.
2/ in the tracker web interface, click on "search" and paste the
stacktrace line you've just handpicked.
3/ sort by date, descending, and check subjects for dupes.


Thanks in advance

i guess it's because the bug was so obviously found by so many people and as a result there was mass posting. Not being able to create a new project is a bit of a problem really. I was guilty of creating one of the duplicates, and i did try and find others versions of the bug, but I was under the mistaken impression at the time that it had something to do with J2ME, and not across the whole IDE.

Still, it shows how many people are affected by the problem, two solutions spring to mind.. a new eap, or a post explaining the problem has been fixed in an upcoming build so please don't post anymore. Which is what this is :)

True, but the sorting is broken, on result, while it works on
result.

about to break a record :
http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=14124

has currently 10 duplicates.

Makes me wish JetBrains wait before publishing the next build, just to
see how high we can get :)
