I looked at an early version of it (pre 3.1). I talked to Sylvain at 
Apachecon, he is expecting to make a release very soon.

Both the plugins you mention are from the Web Tools Project. I think 
that Lepido is currently being updated to work with the latest WTP 
milestone release. Perhaps there is a change in the packaging?

Perhaps a mail to the dev list asking when a release is planned will 
help us plan the way forward.

Yeah, a forms editor is probably more appropriate. Locationmap is pretty 
simple right now but it will get more complex as it progresses. However, 
I'd definetely consider the Lepido approach since they have a cool 
little editor generator that works a treat with the sitemap.xmap files. 
The problem with the Eclipse approach is that everything is coded in Java.
