The file "tutorial.pdf" says:

"If you are using the Eclipse IDE there is also an
Eclipse project file that allows you to open the project straight away. "

I could not find the project file ...

Also, just noticed that there is another version of the tutorial in
Word format (tutorial.doc).

This is stored in SVN alongside tutorial.pdf, but for some reason in
the archive the doc file is stored in one of the subdirectories, viz:
src/empire-db-examples. Not sure why one would need the proprietary
Word fomat document - surely anyone that can read Word can also read
PDF format files? - but if it is needed, seems to me it should be
alongside the PDF version of the file.

Not blockers, but should be fixed for a future release.
