The easiest way to set up Buildship for development is to run the Oomph installer. Buildship is part of the default catalog and can be selected in the Oomph wizard. Setup details can be found in the Developer documentation.
We are happy to receive contributions from the Community. Contributions can be bug reports, feature requests, pull requests, etc. In case you want to participate in the development of Buildship through pull requests, please discuss your items on the mailinglist first to ensure that both functionality and implementation are in-sync with the Buildship development team.
Team Project Sets:
A team project set is a lightweight description of a set of source code repositories. It can be used to reconstruct a specific configuration of repositories in your Eclipse workspace.
Buildship is built using Gradle. Buildship is both built and deployed in a fully automated manner. All commits to master - and to all branches - are continuously built with all Eclipse target platforms starting from 4.3.
You can use the code from these repositories to experiment, test, build, create patches, issue pull requests, etc.
