The installer comes with a help page. For the moment, there's no authoring guide.

Features

Nom-exhaustive list of features:

  • Provisioning correct set of plugins in the Eclipse IDE.
  • Binding Git repos (incl. personal Gerrit push URL).
  • Checking out projects.
  • Setting workspace preferences.
  • Configuring dynamic working sets.
  • Keeping project preferences files in sync.

The configuration is model driven, with the possibility to customize a lot for each project, each branch, each user…

Problems and Solutions

Wrong password for the gerrit/git repo entered

In your installed IDE there should be button with a blue person in the main toolbar. Please click it to open your setup preferences. All prompted values are stored as VariableTasks in there and you're able to change them. (see 428268)

Mailing List

Until it has been decided upon the final container project for the tool (currently it belongs to the CDO Releng tools) that would be the EMF newsgroup or the emf-dev mailing list.

Please prefix the subject header of your posts with "[Oomph] ".

Bug Reports and Feature Requests

First search existing bugzillas to avoid duplication.

Then submit a bugzilla.
