+1 for digging that up!
I am sick of error messages. I want possible solution messages. I have spent my life trying to understand error messages. Give me possible solutions/miss-understandings/how to resolve messages
My point with the “Hip” thing was notion that not everyone can fix openly understandable and fixable things, for whatever reasons, time, ability, whatever. I am unskilled in Scala, SBT, github, compiler writing, Scalatest … and the list goes on. I my God I’m hideous!!! But I still want the best for Scala.
I think you can still write user stories, open issues, design error message mappings from what you see today to what you want to see in the future. You can organise people who share you vision and call for contributions. There’s still a lot you can do!
