Nowhere :( This is a bug. There were unofficial versions of this
packages and the maintainer probably just forgot to change
control back to '2.1'.
You can work around it by downloading the source (apt-get source
eclipse), cd eclipse-2.1, vi debian/control and basicly deleting all
'-3' after the eclipse package names in any 'Depends:' line.
Then do a "dpkg-buildpackage -uc -rfakeroot" and wait some time...
Afterwards you can dpkg -i the debs
Hopefully a new version will be uploaded soon...
BTW, can anybody give a nice URL/short explanations, how to make
diffs against the files in debian subdir? I would like to submit a
bugreport with patches for this (and some other things I found) and
a short look at "man diff" scared me off a bit...
