It appears the package can be built without eclipse-jdt and eclipse-rcp. Works with cowbuilder at least. We probably exclude the eclipse classes in debian/bootstrap.xml anyway. I'm not exactly sure how the BND Eclipse plugin is supposed to work because I see we also symlink various jars into Eclipse specific directories in debian/rules. I believe it would be possible to drop the build-dependencies on eclipse-jdt and eclipse-rcp. We would lose the BND Eclipse plugin but the rest should still continue to work. Markus
