My team is still trying to work on this as much as time permit. Even now there is gerrit review pending for building a small subset of ecf via tycho which to be extended later (https://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/71986/). It is true that we are not able to put as much resources as I would like into it so any help is more than welcome.
