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 can solve real problems and create patches I would like to publish them.

Many projects have an Oomph setup that can be used like this to automatically setup a development environment:

Unfortunately that specific example is waiting for a fix I've contributed; the team hasn't been actively (nor passively) maintaining their setup:

Thanks a lot ☺
It seems exactly what I was looking for.
Now I'll see when I can get time to get started.
