Actually I am not looking into it at the present time. I’ll get into it at some point, if
it is not fixed before. So if you think you can solve this, I’ll welcome your help.

On the side note, I am now an Intellij user, I only start Eclipse to build IvyDE. And I haven’t
done Eclipse plugin development in years, so I am not fast. :)

Is it required ? This env variable is only needed when calling the jenkins target. In a dev
environment we shouldn't call them.

I think in this mailing list we told to run some jenkins target to make easier the setup of
the dev environment. But it as actually to call the targets which download and setup Eclipse.
That’s why I renamed them, so we should continue to make the proper distinction to the tweaks
for Jenkins, and the dev targets.
