Hi there,

I intend to work on some issues that I need to get fixed. Unfortunately I'm a bit confused about the WTP project overall.

First of all I wasn't able to figure out the actual starting point within the web (I mean a landing page providing links for all necessary infos). I consider https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/webtools to be the most recent and valid location but it wasn't really helpful for me.

What I did so far:

* I've checked out the GIT repo https://git.eclipse.org/r/jeetools/webtools.javaee * I attempted to build it using Maven but it showed me the following error message:
Caused by: org.eclipse.equinox.p2.core.ProvisionException: No repository found at http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/4.5milestones/S-4.5M5a-201502031300. at org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.repository.helpers.AbstractRepositoryManager.fail(AbstractRepositoryManager.java:395) at org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.repository.helpers.AbstractRepositoryManager.loadRepository(AbstractRepositoryManager.java:692)
* I couldn't find this platform neither through a browser nor through the Eclipse updating mechanism.
This URL has disappeared a while ago. However, the wtp-parent pom was updated since then to use another URL for platform. Please make sure you're using the latest version of parent pom by adding the "-U" flag to the Maven command. So a full command to build the webtools.javaee component would be `mvn clean verify -U -Pbuild-individual-bundles`.

What I'm hoping for:
* Is there some sort of documentation available which exercises point-by-point each step to setup an environment?
AFAIK, the main documentation page is https://wiki.eclipse.org/Web_Tools_Projec , however, I cannot find a welcoming page for new contributors... What would be great would be that you start one, and ask here whenever there's something blocking you.
