I think we can add this to the README.txt! Do you have a patch?

I uploaded the file to (bottom of the page).
But I don't see any good spot to stuff it in the README. There is no pointer to the HowToContribute
page at all, nor to the code formatting styles ... what do you think - create such section
at the bottom of README, or leave it out?

Thanks for your response. I will update the Wiki with the file. After I do that, I'll add
some text to the README file. I'll need one of you to help me commit it though.


Thanks again,

+1 - I'd prefer this stay out of svn as well - I'd rather it go on the wiki too - perhaps
in the same place that you can find the formatting file for eclipse and intellij.

To me, this is stuff that can go on the wiki or somewhere else, otherwise over time, there
will be others to add in, etc.  We could simply add a pointer to the wiki page in the README.

I always find it annoying when I checkout the code to a new project in eclipse, that I need
to put everything that I care about in the classpath and adding the dependent libraries. On
another project I'm involved with, we did that process once, adding all the source code to
the classpath and the libraries and created a .classpath.tmpl. Now when people checkout the
code, they can copy the content of that file to their .classpath file and setting up the project
is reducing from a couple of minutes to few seconds.

I don't want to check-in .classpath because not everyone wants all the code in their classpath.

I attached such file to the mail. Note that the only dependency which will break on other
machines is the ant.jar dependency, which on my Windows is located under c:\ant. That jar
is required to compile contrib/ant from eclipse. Not sure how to resolve that, except besides
removing that line from the file and document separately that that's what you need to do if
you want to add contrib/ant ...

The file is sorted by name, putting the core stuff at the top - so it's easy for people to
selectively add the interesting packages.

I don't know if an issue is required, if so I can create it in and move the discussion there.
