I'm trying to understand the license issues related to re-distribution of
eclipse.

My team is developing a commercial plugin, and we would like to eliminate
the need to connect to the eclipse site to download and install eclipse. We
would like to put the current eclipse distribution on a CD along with our
plugin so the customer can install from the CD rather than download.

After reading everything I can find on the eclipse site regarding
redistribution, I'm still not sure if we have to do anything special in our
license or not. It seems that if we tell the customer to download eclipse,
then install our plugin, there is nothing to do except provide about and
license files for our own plugin.

Question: if we do include eclipse on the cd so the customer can avoid the
download, do we need to provide any additional license information beyond
what we would do if eclipse was not distributed on the CD.

Our install procedure will be clear about the fact that an unmodified
eclipse is being installed, and that our plugin is installed as a separate
procedure.

Any advice (including sending me to a different group) will be welcome.
