Hello, I'm a newbie when it comes to coding, but nevertheless, I would like to help contribute to Eclipse's development as well as gain valuable coding experience in the process. However, I'm rather lost and don't know where to go. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

Most projects maintain their repos in git, so you'll want to install
egit to work with them.<br>
<blockquote><a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://www.eclipse.org/egit/">http://www.eclipse.org/egit/</a><br>

If it's the platform itself you're interested in, you'll find the
source repo here:<br>
<blockquote><a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.git">http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.git</a><br>
</blockquote>
In general, you can typically find a project's repo by Googling
"eclipse &lt;project-name&gt; git".<br>
<br>
All projects use bugzilla for problem reports and feature
enhancement requests.  <br>
<blockquote><a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/">https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/</a><br>
</blockquote>
Most projects really appreciate contributions in the form of patches
to address such things.<br>
