So I just built the f15 packages on CentOS6.2 and tried to install them
and use them in eclipse and it seems that the plugin is not loading. I'm
not sure where I go to find out what plugins eclipse is seeing and why
it choses to not load one. Any help on that front? Is there something
inherently wrong with using the F15 rpms which are packaged in F16 over
the F13 rpms which are packaged in Fedora 14?
