I've used the Eclipse platform for many years and now I want to contribute to the Eclipse platform.

Where can I find a short description of how to setup an environment to debug and compile the Eclipse platform together with my own RCP applications?

As to start with I just need a local copy of the Eclipse platform source code (which I believe is open source) and a description of how to setup an appropiate environment to let me debug and patch locally. Then when I see that I've patches that seems to solve real problems I could take the next step and publish them in Bugzilla.
