More and more contributions to the Eclipse platform project

If you look at the Git platform.ui repository log, we are getting more and more people involved in providing patches to the Eclipse platform project. I did not count them, but I think we got contributions from at least 10 new contributors in the last two months. And some of them are starting to solve complex issues already.

From helping new contributors with the setup, I learned that for new contributors the Gerrit setup is relatively complex, therefore I created a detailed description:

Contributing to the Eclipse platform project – Gerrit setup

We have also created two “entry” level bugs, which new contributors can use to provide a simple fix, to learn the whole process:

Bug 425962 – [New Contributors] Remove (non-Javadoc) @see statements if @Override is used
Bug 428355 – [New Contributors] Fix warnings in platform projects
