Subject Diagnostic Utility For AG
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2008 18:14:28 GMT
Hi all,

I wanted to toss an idea out to the community and get some feedback.  A few
other members of the community and myself are interested in creating a
diagnostic utility for AG.  This diagnostic utility would perform something
similar to what one would see when an application crashes and a prompter
allows the end user to send a report to the developers.  However this idea
has an open source twist to it - rather than the developers exclusively
being able to view the issue or contribute a solution, any user can.  When
an error or issue occurs in AG it'll generate a sort of unique message key
that will be used to automatically generate a wiki type page somewhere.
This wiki page will include vital information that will help in debugging
the issue.  There any user/developer can post solutions or thoughts.  In
addition, we'd try to aim to create some sort of standardized way to
generate these message keys so if another user encounters the same error it
will redirect or build upon the existing wiki another user has already
opened.  Ultimately... the hopes are that this tool can serve as a
convenient way for users to get help on their issues and expedite that
process by automating a process and presenting it in an organized fashion.

I know theres plenty room for ideas and improvements to this.. so please
feel to comment anything!

To start.. does anyone have a list of what they'd like to see in the error
reporting diagnostics?

Wishing you all the best,
Joseph Leong
