Hi all,

I'd like to create a patch for a PDE feature enhancement I requested, to
try to take on bug 257949* but am having difficulty checking out the
source from the CVS repository. I _think_ I'm pulling it from the right
place, but whenever I do I wind up with compiler errors.

I am using 3.5M3 so that my development environment has a near up-to-date
set of plug-ins.

For instance, here are the nine errors associated with the downloaded copy
of org.eclipse.pde.core:

SimpleConfiguratorManipulator cannot be resolved to a type P2Utils.java
org.eclipse.pde.core/src/org/eclipse/pde/internal/core line 116

for the arguments (URI) P2Utils.java
org.eclipse.pde.core/src/org/eclipse/pde/internal/core line 151 Java
Problem

So, OK, I didn't give quite that easy, but I then had to search the CVS
repository for SimpleConfiguratorManipulator. To make a long story short,
I found some p2 plugins, downloaded them, and my compiler error count
increased. Unsurprisingly, I don't feel comfortable writing an enhancement
when I can't even get the code to compile!

In this case, the pde.core plug-in came from the CVS path
pde/ui/org.eclipse.pde.core

Your expert advice sought. Thanks!
