The developer prepared me an update of the GNU ARM Packs manager and want me to test it. but how do I install the update on Eclipse ?

I was given this path :
git clone ssh://ralph-es@git.code.sf.net/u/ralph-es/gnuarmeclipse u-ralph-es-gnuarmeclipse

Do I need to have git on my computer?

I have no clue

If you install git, you'll be able to clone the project and build it. If
this is what you want to do, then, yes, you will need to install it.

Windows
git.http://git-scm.com/download/win

Linuces using rpm-based packages
$ sudo yum install git

Linuces using Aptitude (Debian)
$ sudo apt-get install git

then execute the clone command from the command line in the place where
you want the project/repository to be put. This will create a
subdirectory named gnuarmeclipse.

Thereupon, launch Eclipse and do:

1. File -> Import... -> General -> Existing Projects into Workspace.
2. Browse to parent directory (where you did the clone).
3. Select gnuarmeclipse.

....and there you are. You can build and test it. (Mind you, I don't know
what it is--maybe you want to build it, then drop it into your Eclipse
dropins folder to test it--I don't know.)

Hope this helps.
