Welcome to the Fedora Packager for Eclipse Project
What is Fedora Packager for Eclipse?
Fedora Packager for Eclipse is an Eclipse plug-in which helps Fedora contributors to package RPMs and interact with Fedora infrastructure such as Koji, Bodhi and Fedora Git. All this from within Eclipse.

User Guide and Initial Setup
Note that these instructions apply for users using Fedora only. Some things might work on other distributions, but it's untested so we don't know.
If you are a Fedora packager or want to become a Fedora packager and want to use our Eclipse plug-in for your packaging you have the following options:
- Install Fedora Packager for Eclipse via YUM: $ sudo yum install eclipse-fedorapackager
- Install Fedora Packager for Eclipse on Fedora using our p2 repository and Eclipse downloaded from eclipse.org
Once you have Fedora Packager for Eclipse installed, open up Eclipse, go to "Help" => "Help Contents" and click on "Fedora Packager for Eclipse User Guide". If you are new to Fedora packaging, you should read the "Getting Started as Maintainer for a New Fedora Package" section. Alternatively follow instructions in our User Guide.
