Bug#574356: RM: eclipse/3.2.2-6.1
I would to have eclipse from stable removed. The particular version of eclipse
in stable does not work with xulrunner 1.9 (or higher). The incompatibility
cannot be fixed with a binNMU and is not trivially patchable. This is
especially true for xulrunner in backports (1.9.1) which broke compatibility
with xulrunner 1.9.
Backporting a newer version of eclipse is at the current time not an option:
- 3.4.1 is not release ready (and does not work with xulrunner 1.9.1).
- 3.5.2 would require backporting 11+ depedencies.
While there has been reports of workarounds, I am not confident that we will
be able to build a new eclipse for stable with them within a resonable time
Thank you in advance,
 Not to mentioned that this is not even in unstable yet. We expect to
upload it later this week.
 The 3.2.2 and 3.4.1 versions of eclipse use a different building method
than 3.5.2. A method none of us have any experience with.
