I've been programming/develping with GEF/SWT for a few years now and I'm
interested in maybe contributing back to Eclipse and getting more involved.
I've got 3.3 installed and been able to download any/all eclipse
projects from CVS, but now I'm unclear on where to go from here.
How do I set up my development environment to concurrently access latest
code-base, duplicate bugs, and test fixes? There seems to be a number
of ways to do. Which target platform? which code-base? Do I need to
download/compile all relevant/dependent source plugins or use binaries?
Is there some documentation/how-to's on this? i.e. "How To Set Up
Eclipse In Order to Contribute?"
Any help would be much appreciated.

Perhaps related, I saw where a recent contributor was asking about the
status of his patch. The patch contained generics which are only supported
in java 5, but GEF currently targets 1.4 JRE. I'm not sure how this
contributor got into a state where the patch he was providing wouldn't
compile in CVS, but it's something to watch out for when providing patches.
