|Re: [cbi-dev] New Joiner Questions|
Hello,I am a new hacker on Eclipse source code. I am interested to use the ASTParser et al to do some Java source analysis. As a starting point, I built the Eclipse source from Git HEAD. I had some troubles initially, but I was able to resolve all build issues. Kudos to Lars' blog posts and the general Eclipse wiki pages. All were quite helpful!
One of the ways I like to give back to open source is to improve docs -- Wiki pages and Javadocs.
I have already contributed some small notes to this build page on Wiki:
>>> Question #1Regarding Javadocs, what is the right way to submit a javadoc-only patch?
Here are my assumptions, please correct or amend as necessary.1) Update Javadocs on HEAD in my own local Git repo.2) Create patch via git format-patch
3) Create bug in Bugzilla with severity=enhancementIdeally, I should compile the code and run tests before submitting my patch. I want to be sure the behavior of the code is unchanged -- no "fat fingers"/typos.
>>> Question #2How can I run "mvn clean verify" (or whatever Maven command) for just one Maven module?
I tried and got an error. Example module: git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/jdt/eclipse.jdt.core
>>> Question #3Finally, for module eclipse.jdt.core, I see a "rewrite" package under org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom. Should this worry me? (I don't want my Javadoc patches to be aimed at the wrong area.)
With regards,Kevin Arpe
