The PDE project is structured into four major components: api tools, build, ui and incubator.
Incubator components vary in maturity level and are supported by the component leads.
The PDE project places a very high value on community contributions. This document is intended to help those interested contribute to PDE. It communicates our conventions and discusses ways to get your contributions prioritized.

The recommended way to work with PDE is by checking them out of CVS. Doing this makes it easy to try the latest changes and work with patches and ensures that you can easily browse the source code and documentation.
