Hi Everyone,

I can't seem to find any up-to-date information about Eclipse packages
in Fedora. Basically I'm trying to install Eclipse PDT (PHP Development
Tools) [1], so I guess any information with regards to PDT in the
latest Fedora release would be helpful.

PDT had been included in Fedora as the "eclipse-pdt" package up to and
including Fedora 31. Then it mysteriously disappeared. Am I missing
something or is it really gone? And if it is, is there any plan to
bring it back?

It is gone as an rpm but still easily installable from its upstream update site (https://www.eclipse.org/pdt/#download). There are no plans from the current/previous Eclipse rpm maintainers to bring it back. Actually we are moving towards shipping only Eclipse platform and users install the plugins they need from Eclipse update sites. Of course we would support people if they want to ship plugins as rpms but we have more and more upstream Eclipse duties and it's up to the community to step up and maintain eclipse plugins rpms if desired.

I also noticed that Eclipse packages became modular in Fedora 30, but
the Eclipse modules disappeared in Fedora 33 and the Eclipse packages
seem to be back in the main distro. Along the same lines, I found the
information in [2] to be outdated, as it still mentions the modules. Is
there any other official/up-to-date page dedicated to Eclipse packages
in Fedora?

This is an oversight which I'll fix soon. And it's a wiki so everyone is welcome to edit it to keep it uptodate!

Last but not least, the same page at [2] mentions "PHPEclipse", but
that project was abandoned a long time ago. There is no reference of
Eclipse PDT (or any other PHP related package, for that matter).
