Re: testing fedora redeclipse 1.3.1 packaging
Hi testers and gamesers!
The latest version (1.3.1) of Red Eclipse has been brewing in testing
for quite a while now (and upstream is already planning for a soonish
1.4), and I was wondering if there would be anyone interesting in poking
it a bit and see if it can get pushed into updates.

still apply to this new version.
