I totally agree with Mickael. You could start contributing the
documentation on how to setup the environment.
1. You can start adding a section here:
2. If you need help, please ask in
https://mattermost.eclipse.org/eclipse/channels/webtools or Eclipse IRC:
#eclipse or #eclipse-dev

Here's the instructions, in a nutshell:
- You need an IDE and a TP (Target Platform). As IDE you can use Eclipse
for RCP Developers and as target Platform you can use Eclipse JEE.
- Here is a video explaining how to setup such an Ide for the JSDT
(JavaSscript DevTools), a subproject of WTP:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFxfuudlau8 - follow this video until
minute 5.26. Then, instead of importing JSDT projects (like in the video),
you should import the WTP projects you want to work on.
- Here you find the list of all the WebTools repos:
https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/webtools/developer (to work with
gerrit, you should clone using the Gerrit URI [link

- don't import all the WTP projects
