  • Search for the answer. Google is your friend. Do your part. There are even some tricks for limiting the scope of your search.
  • Choose the right forum. If you're not sure, try posting on the Newcomer Forum. If you do post in the wrong place, somebody will set you straight.
  • Don't introduce yourself. It's a kind gesture, but unnecessary at Eclipse.org.
