Re: [eclipse-dev] Lightweight M1 for September release

My workflow is similar except that I don't update but perform clean install every day.
1) Download & unzip latest SDK from 
2) Start Eclipse with dummy workspace, "File>Import...>Install>Install Software Items from File", use (local copy from git of) . That one installs all the required 3rd party tooling that is not in SDK.
3) Proceed with installation, restart and use actual "work" workspace to work.
That takes ~5 minutes and with that alone I've found few regressions.
The benefit of clean install: I can switch to the previous (working) installation at any time if a new regression prevents me from using latest SDK build.
Also with that I can bisect "complicated" regressions (where one has no idea which module caused regression), because I have almost every I-build locally.
Kind regards,
Andrey Loskutov

new questioN. I don't even knwo where i would find nightly build to download. And why are those I-Builds not nightly but more like weekly? has links to releases, milestones and Ibuilds. It's the official download page of Eclipse Platform (first link on the right at .
I-builds are nightly except for the cases when a build fails when we fix it during the next day - as today.
I use I-builds via (listed and explained if one clicks on I-build from the very first URL I pointed to ) and update every morning before starting to do any work.
