I was a bit unsure about version numbers but I arrived at this (wrong) conclusion after accessing the configuration info in Eclipse/EPF via Help > About > Installation Details > Configuration.I checked version number of
org.eclipse.platform assuming this would match the overall version number. As it turns out it doesn't. To me it is not clear how one can determine the Eclipse platform version EPF is based on.
When I access configuration EPF 22.214.171.124. I get
org.eclipse.platform (3.3.200.v200906111540) "Eclipse Platform" [Installed]
In Eclipse 3.6.1. I can see for example
org.eclipse.platform (3.6.1.r361_v20100909-9gF78GrkFqw7GrsZnvz0JWNTeb6fue6896L) "Eclipse Platform"
3.5.2 is eclipse-java-galileo-SR2-win32.zip I think. Which has
org.eclipse.platform (3.3.202.v201002111343) "Eclipse Platform" [Resolved]
Anyway, that looks pretty close, so from this we expect that EPF will integrate with Eclipse 3.5.2
I did a quick test (on Windows 7) to see if GIT will work with EPF and it seems to work fine.
- Copied features and plugins directory from EPF 126.96.36.199 into a Eclipse 3.5.2 installation
- Start Eclipse 3.5.2
- Help > Install New Software
- Added new update site for GIT plugin EGIT - http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates
- Opened a method library
- Open resource perspective
- Right mouse on method lib and Team > Share project
- Choose GIT
- Create repos
- Added the files and successfully committed method lib to new repos
So EGIT seems to offer a way to use EPF with GIT. The EGIT project is btw in the incubation phase.

EPF 188.8.131.52 is based on Eclipse 3.5.2.

Will Git be supported for version control?
It has been some time ago I last did this so I thought
I best check the status first before giving you any instructions on how
this can be achieved.
As it turns out EPF 184.108.40.206 is based on an pretty old version of the Eclipse
platform, I never expected it to be based on the most recent version but
as it turns out it is based on a 'archived' Eclipse version. It is not
based on Eclipse Helios (3.6), Eclipse Galileo (3.5), Eclipse Ganymede
(3.4) but on version 3.3.2.
GIT is fairly new so we can be sure that Eclipse GIT plugins will not be
available for 3.3.2.
Upgrading EPF to 3.6 should be a priority I think. It is not part of any
EPF release plan currently? There are two things I would very much like
to see happen with EPF: 1) make EPF available as a Eclipse plugin so it
can be easily installed into/added to an existing Eclipse installation
2) upgrade EPF to the most recent Eclipse platform version and ideally
it should not lag to much behind the most recent Eclipse platform version.

It is possible to install EPF as a plugin in Eclipse so
you can use it together with other useful Eclipse plugins. That way I have
used EPF together with MyLyn and Subversion. In a similar way it should
be possible to use EPF with GIT I think.
Are there any guides on how this might be achieved? Unfortunately
I haven't used Eclipse :/
