Please consider updating Eclipse to version 3.6 . The
currently bundled version
is 3.4, which is already one version behind.
The current plan is for Eclipse 3.6 to be released in June 2006 (

http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project-plan.php?projectid=eclipse
(http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project-plan.php?projectid=eclipse)
) which
would make it suitable for inclusion in OpenSUSE 11.3 (
http://en.opensuse.org/Roadmap
(http://en.opensuse.org/Roadmap)
).
This would also solve SWT's incompabitlities with GTK 2.18+ , reported
at https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=539022 .

Very good idea, I fully agree.

Robert, Alex: I agree, go ahead and update it!

Which project should I base my work on from

http://software.opensuse.org/search?baseproject=openSUSE%3AFactory&p=1&q=eclipse
?

osc meta pkg openSUSE:Factory eclipse | grep '<devel'
  <devel project="Java:packages" package="eclipse"/>
So it is Java:packages project.

+ I've managed to build Eclipse 3.5.1 , but packaging is something else.
+ What's the best place to take this discussion to?
