- How to get search console source code
You can either install the source features from the update site (suitable if you want to develop an extension for search console), or fetch the sources from the Git repo, if you want to modify the sources / contribute back to the community.
Here are the links to our repository:
The source code of an example search provider is under folder /examples in our repo. This can prove very useful if you want to implement a search provider.

None, provided your eclipse is not too old. If you find incompatibilities, file a bug.

You're welcome! Follow the standard drill. It's easiest to open a bug with a patch on component E4/Search, or write directly to firstname.lastname@example.org .
A good starting point for new contributors is http://wiki.eclipse.org/Development_Resources
- Why am i seeing search types that do nothing?
Because it's work in progress. These are the compatibility search types, which adapt the extensions contributed to the org.eclipse.search.searchPages extension point, to the Search console framework.
- How can I disable the compatibility search types?
Just deselect the Compatibility feature when installing. This is available from integration build I20110630-1005 afterwards.
