The code in
seems to introduce a copy of a code in another part of NetBeans repository. Avoid copy/paste programming and rather
invest your time into creation of proper API.
I this a joke?
*** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 170882 ***
Is your duplication a joke? I will not trade closed bug for an enhancement.
So why don't you make a defect from #170882?
This bug is reported to eliminate duplicated code, it may or may not depend on presence of new API in progress module.
Cannot practically be done without an API, and placing the API into the platform seems very appropriate to me. So, this
cannot be efficiently fixed without fixing issue #170882.
BTW: please define how much duplicated code (ideally by means of AST nodes, or byte code size) is considered a P3
defect. Otherwise this is an invalid bug.
IZ is not appropriate place for organizational discussion. But here is short and my last comment about this topic in
this issue: As former Retouche member you should be aware of code duplication being bad thing. I believe we have to
operate in mode where we need to ask for reasons why to duplicate code, and not why not. Clearly, in this case there
is a simple way (issue 170882) to avoid duplication, as such I do not see a single reason why the duplication should
be allowed. If you want to argue more about this, please raise your concerns to nbdev@ or other developer's mailing
