Yes, the notes were very useful, and were the first thing I tried.

Unfortunately, unzipping the file into the Eclipse IDE directory didn't 
work--the Eclipse IDE simply didn't know anything about Saros.

Then I discovered the update URL entry in feature.xml and tried asking 
the Eclipse to look for new features there (Help->Software Updates->Find 
and Install->Search for New Features). It found and installed Saros with 
partial success. Now I could find Saros in the Window->Preference dialog 
and point it to my installation of ECLiPSe. And the ECLiPSe 
documentation was there, too.

But neither the File->New menu nor the File->New->Project... menu has an 
option for a Saros project, and there doesn't appear to be any way to 
add a Saros module, so I can't find a way to work with ECLiPSe source files.

I'm sure there's something silly I'm doing wrong,

Thanks,
