[cdt-dev] New Build Mechanism in Place

Hey all, 

Those who have tracked the nightly builds will notice some changes. The 
new build mechanism is now in place and is driving the nightly builds. 
Some things you'll see:
- Version numbers now have the timestamp of when the build started instead 
of a build number.
- The platform specific features are gone and the base CDT feature is now 
the one you install (along with the builders).
- Zip files are generated. These are versioned without the timestamp (i.e. 
2.0.0). There is a zip for each platform and then one for each builder 
- The tests are now performed using Eclipse's test framework (again, we 
used to have this a long time ago)
- The 2.0 build page has the links to the test results as well as the zip 
files (

For those who want to build the CDT themselves, I haven't had the chance 
to write up a readme file yet. You can, however, take a look at the 
contents of org.eclipse.cdt.releng. Everything starts at the 
script which calls the build.xml ant file which then goes off into various 
other components including the PDE build scripts.
