I had eclipse from Sid and worked ok, then I uninstalled it and
install from experimental, but now my eclipse doesn't recognize anything
(like JDT for example), the only "problem" for the installation was the
notification of #641378. What do you mean by uninstallable? (maybe this
is related with my current problem).

You're right, this package is not "easy" based on dependencies,
eclipse-dltk #551855 depends on eclipse-mylyn #581422, and if I'm right
eclipse-manpage is part of eclipse-linuxtools #593285.

I want to collaborate in Java packaging so I want to be a member of the
Java Team, my main interests in this moment are Eclipse related but any
other task is fully welcome, I'm already subscribed at debian-java and
pkg-java-maintainers mailing lists, currently I'm watching the Java
related videos from DebConf10 [1-5].

As introduction my name is Fernando, I'm 28 years old and live in Mexico
City, I work as a Java Developer for an Insurance Company (unfortunately
not FLOSS related). Currently I'm a member of l10n-spanish, publicity,
and other Debian activities like admin of ask.debian.net, debian.mx,
etc., but so far no development (packaging) activity.

Any recommendations on how to start to collaborate will be very useful,
mainly to know the priorities of the team and be able to join my efforts
in the same direction.

Thanks for your attention!

Your job is being a professor and researcher: That's one hell of a good excuse
for some of the brain-damages of minix.
