Won't it be a great benefit to all users if the tracking incident database for Intel compiler incidents (bugs/features, etc.) can be made "viewable" for everyone? I think it could be a "marketing coup" and generate a lot of positive feedback for Intel software products if Intel were to make this happen.
I know Premier Support offers some tracking capability, but my subscription status doesn't include that support and so I don't know the exact details. My interest is in some tracking capability that will be open to everyone and which will give the users to simply view and keep up with the progress on all existing incidents,
Note it is NOT necessary for the actual incident database to be accessible for all users - it could even be that a report is generated using some automated script at some frequency, perhaps weekly, from the database and a summary of all open incidents and their status along with incidents that have been closed over some time period, say past year, is presented at some link at software.intel.com. The summary simply has to include the subject and some description of the incident, its status, the reference to a forum topic if applicable, if fixed then the details of the compiler version that includes the fix. This itself will be of great help and it will more than suffice for what I'm looking for. Of course, Intel is free to include any additional details, if they wish to, such as file attachments, sample code, developer comments, etc.
It will be much better than the current situation where someone who doesn't have Premier Support opens a topic on the forum, someone at Intel reviews and submits an incident with the Development team, and has to post back manually on the forum to update the readers (and the OP) on the status. And it is easy to lose track in such an environment, so the OP often has to post a reminder comment to know the status.
What does everyone think? Feedback/comments welcome.
