Re: plans for eclipse luna in debian
I am not an expert with mh_make, however I see a problem here.
Eclipse build depends on Tycho, however Tycho build depends on both
Eclipse and Tycho itself!
So, two problems:
(1) mh_make fails for both projects.
Markus, can you explain me how were you able to build the base structure
of Eclipse without mh_make? I should do the same with Tycho.
(2) How to build everything?
Fedora packagers were able to build just a tiny part of Tycho (a
"bootstrap"), then a tiny part of Eclipse, then Tycho, and at last
Eclipse. What about Debian?
