      Description

      Some files in the Eclipse plugins are licensed under the EPL. These should be either removed (for instance, kept on SourceForge, with the packaging changed so that Apache gets & distributes binary-only versions of these files), or rewritten to no longer be derivative works. The latter is the better course, and probably can be done with some small redesign (TBD).

        Eclipse modules that were derivative works of Eclipse source have been removed. The functionality was simplified (previous design was an over-design) for resource picking, and for content assist, it was re-written to take advantage of new APIs in 3.2 Eclipse. For 3.1 Eclipse, it will still run, but with only a browse capability, not a content-assist capability.
