Hello,

could you please give me advice with regards to the following?

I would like to modify an existing plugin, more specifically
the cdo/emf editor plugin org.eclipse.emf.cdo.edit if that
matters.
The plugin in question is already part of my eclipse runtime.

What is the best way to create a "clone", modify it
and use the new version instead of the original one?

I already checked out the source code from the CVS.
I intended to export my plugin-version using
"export -> create deployable plug-ins and fragments",
but the wizard did not offer anything in the
"Available Plugins and Fragments" field.

I also tried to create a mini-RCP application and to add
my plugin to the applications dependencies. However,
the wizard does not seem to be aware of the existence of
my "cloned" plugin and offers the plugin from the
runtime only. (I know, that using a separate target
platform would be better.)

I would be grateful hints!

Kind regards

Harald
