this is how it works:
- The plugin depends on the existence of .project and .classpath files
where the project should be created.

- Browse (or type) the root from where you want to search for existing
projects to import.
- Select "Next". You will now be presented with a list of the projects
found. Select the ones you want to import and press "Finish". Now, the
projects are (hopefully) imported.
Be aware the the error handling is very primitive. You may be presented
with an ugly dialog showing misc. errors. However, I haven't had
problems using it so far for my own purposes (such as making initial
I am working on an "official" release at the moment, so stay tuned...
If you need assistance, feel free to contact me directly.
