I really appreciate all the feedback. You guys are awesome!

Some of what I have learned.

1) Need a keyboard shortcut to push and build.
- this should be easy
- I am thinking if optionally Automatically pushing and building a project on the save of a file is a good idea.

2) Easier way to populate the i Projects from the i Project Navigator (From RSE seems to work well)
- Buck, you might want to check out the "Show Remote Objects" item from the context menu in the i Project Navigator. Not only does this give you a complete view including the compiled objects, but you can also right click on Remote members and add them to your i Project with a simple action.

3) Improved build mechanism
- Simple compiles seem to work, If people are aware of RPGLEINC they can avoid compiling their copy files.
- ILE is tricky for i Projects to guess correctly because it is not obvious = we would need some additional metadata in the project to remember what binds to what and with what compile/bind options = we could possibly populate this from the existing compiled objects

4) IFS is missing
- I hope everyone has tried using the Remote Reconciler on any project.
You can use specialize Python/HTML/Java projects and get all of the extra Eclipse tooling for those. Or if you just want to work with RPG/CL, you can create a General project. Eric Simpson has detailed instructions here http://ibm.biz/rdi_reconcile_ifs See section 2.4 in http://ibm.biz/rdi_git for step by step instructions in how to team share with Git.
This is discussed on slide 37ff in http://ibm.biz/rd_whatsnew_9511

5) More than 1 library in the same i Project = I am sorry but this is the current design assumption of the architecture of i Projects. You simply have to create multiple projects, one for each library. (Or you can have more than one per library, dealing with disjoint subsets).
- having multiple projects can actually be an advantage, allowing a smaller scope and context for your changes.

Once again, I really appreciate everyone who took the time to give us this useful feedback.

Edmund
