I've followed the instructions to check out the project I'm interested in (org.eclipse.internal.ui.datatransfer), but there are unresolved dependencies that prevent me from building and running (I guess obviously).

I'm not new to Eclipse, but I am new to working on Eclipse source code (I realize this is not the same as plugin development). I have noticed a quirk in the Ant Buildfile Export Wizard and would like to try my hand at fixing it before posting it as a bug. A description, via an example, would be a good addition to this page I think.

What I'd like to know is how to a) resolve the dependencies, and b) run my changes.

Is it possible to do that without downloading (and building) the entire workbench. I mean, can I compile against already compiled libraries and just work on the code I'm interested in? Or is there an alias in cvs that serves my purpose? Thanks!
