remove eclipse from the ubuntu repositories

Registered by karl michael on 2009-06-23

This would help to prevent a bad user experience (install 3.2 via repo, use it, find out its 3 years old, migrate to 3.5 manually)

If eclipse will want to be in ubuntu they'll need to cooperate themselves, as ubuntu clearly does not have enough man power. On the other hand, keeping ecliplse 3.2 gives a bad reputation to ubuntu.

if there is no such package, it's not too bad, since eclipse must be kept up-to date, and people using eclipse is typically used to get it from the web site.
