Re: [m2e-users] m2e not installed after upgrading Eclipse to Indigo (3.7) from Galileo (3.5)

Thanks Igor.  Installing m2e through the marketplace works.  I tried
several times, may be for me personally the other 2 approaches somehow
just didn't.

Anyway, glad to know about the marketplace, through there I've also found
some other plugins that I may be interested.

Thanks again.

James
