Actually I don't see that bug as a blocker for releasing. The bug only 
make a error raised at Eclipse startup, it won't affect any functionality.
Thought this bug have to be fixed for 2.0 final version.
And as I commented in the jira issue, the fix will be probably a little 
more complex than you suggested.

did a bit of debugging and it looks like the line:

null. The reason is because Eclipse hasn't yet initialized that part of the plugin because
none of the projects are expanded yet. Is it possible to just add a simple check to change
the above line to be:
