Hi there,

I intend to work on some issues that I need to get fixed. Unfortunately I'm a bit confused about the WTP project overall.
First of all I wasn't able to figure out the actual starting point within the web (I mean a landing page providing links for all necessary infos). I consider to be the most recent and valid location but it wasn't really helpful for me.
What I'm hoping for:
* Is there some sort of documentation available which exercises point-by-point each step to setup an environment?
AFAIK, the main documentation page is , however, I cannot find a welcoming page for new contributors...
What would be great would be that you start one, and ask here whenever there's something blocking you.

I totally agree with Mickael. You could start contributing the documentation on how to setup the environment. 
2. If you need help, please ask in or Eclipse IRC: #eclipse or #eclipse-dev

Here's the instructions, in a nutshell: 
- You need an IDE and a TP (Target Platform). As IDE you can use Eclipse for RCP Developers and as target Platform you can use Eclipse JEE. 
- Here is a video explaining how to setup such an Ide for the JSDT (JavaSscript DevTools), a subproject of WTP: - follow this video until minute 5.26. Then, instead of importing JSDT projects (like in the video), you should import the WTP projects you want to work on. 
- Here you find the list of all the WebTools repos: (to work with gerrit, you should clone using the Gerrit URI [link])

- don't import all the WTP projects
