Writing an Eclipse bug or feature request is simple. Writing it such that committers can use it is a bit harder. But committers can even appreciate bugs with just a little care from the start! Learn what it takes to keep committers happy and interested about your requests, revive items that have been forgotten, and how to negotiate about items that you find important but committers decline: and most of all, how to save time doing all that.
