Eclipse (Indigo) Update site

When executing a “clean run” of Eclipse (typically, after p2 has completely messed up your installation and you’ve lost critical functionality / plugins — the only reliable remedy I’ve found thus far, is to wipe ~/.eclipse, and restart from scratch) the ‘Available Update Sites’ is an empty list.


Googling the information proves every time a complete random shot in the dark, so I thought I’d collect the info once and for all in a place I’m likely to find again in the future.


The wiki page (impossibly difficult to find in the maze that Eclipse documentation is):
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Project_Update_Sites 


Gives this link for…
The Eclipse Project Updateshttp://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/3.7


Executing an update of the Eclipse Platform, adds another ‘update site’ that provides a much
richer selection of available plugins:


Indigohttp://download.eclipse.org/releases/indigo


Hope this helps someone else too!
