I'm planning to do it eventually, if no one beats me to it (which I
would really appreciate :-)). My usual strategy, is to copy eclipse over
to eclipse-devel, modify the distfile and version stuff and keep the
patch files. Then it is a boring sequence of make patch -> error -> redo
the patch that failed. I believe some of our patches may no longer be
necessary, like manualpatch-plugins-swt-gtk-os_custom.h and
manualpatch-plugins-swt-cairo-library. After our current patches apply
correctly, there is a new sequence of make -> error -> create new patches.
I hope that helps.
