[cross-project-issues-dev] New: Eclipse-SourceReferences Header

In the 3.6 release, a new bundle manifest header has been introduced to 
refer to the source code associated with a bundle (named 
'Eclipse-SourceReferences). The headers are optionally generated by PDE 
build as projects are fetched from repositories. When the headers are 
present, the Eclipse SDK is capable of reading the headers and importing 
corresponding projects into the workspace.

The Eclipse project (Eclipse SDK) is planning to generate headers for all 
of its "org.eclipse.*" bundles. Other projects in the Helios release may 
choose to generate source reference headers as well. To do so, build 
scripts will have to be modified (addition of a simple 
"generateSourceReferences = true" property).
