Doesn't count if you don't compile it :p

Seriously, though. Eclipse needs to be build from source and installed in /usr, not /opt

I don't know if it even humanly possible :p
Eclipse is composed of tens of sub-modules, and it's just for the core. Even after that, you have a tons of plugins to compile and implement.

In agreement, needs to be built from source.

Maybe, it should be push to 3rd party ?
It is a rather popular software and will be certainly useful to many people

We should try to avoid half-arsing things, imo. If we end up with a third-party package with a view to providing a native package we then need to consider migration paths too.

(i.e. let's not do that.)

@ikey beat me to it. Third-Party is for closed source or non-redistributable software. Is Eclipse a pain in the butt to build? you bet. But it's also really easy to download and unpack if you need it locally.

Any update on this @Tick?

Closing due to lack of response.
