Subject RE: [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-2009) Brush up and update Eclipse-related docs, make them user-friendly.
Date Thu, 30 Nov 2006 10:45:23 GMT
I've updated the doc, the patch is available. 
Not being a tech expert, I couldn't fix purely eclipse-oriented issues.
So, gurus' help is very welcome. ) 

Best regards,
Sveta
