[eclipse-clp-users] Install on Ganymede SR1 win32 fails

I downloaded Saros-1.00.zip and unpacked to my "eclipse ganymede SR1 
win32" folder. But when I start the Ganymede IDE and go to Help | 
Software Updates, neither "saros" nor "eclipse clp" appear under either 
the Installed or Available tabs. 
 
Looking in the directories, these appear under "plugins": 
 
org.eclipseclp.saros.core_1.0.0.jar 
org.eclipseclp.saros.development_1.0.0.jar 
org.eclipseclp.saros.documentation_1.0.0.jar 
org.eclipseclp.saros.eclipse_5.10.82.jar 
org.eclipseclp.saros.runtime_1.0.0.jar 
 
And this appears under "features": 
 
org.eclipseclp.saros_1.0.0.jar 
 
This last one appears strange, because it's the only jar under 
"features"...it seems it should be a manifest file instead. But these 
placements correspond to the folder structure in the zip.

There is nothing in Saros-1.00.zip except the jars listed above...no 
docs. I've been trying to follow

https://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=550902&group_id=177708 
<https://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=550902&group_id=177708>

Saros does appear under Windows | Preferences, but it does not appear 
under Help | Software Updates. But perhaps I shouldn't worry about 
updates yet. Saros does appear under File | New | Project, so the 
subject line of this post may be inaccurate...but can't be sure yet.

Regarding the Saros instructions at the link above, they require 
selecting an ECLiPSe engine. Where can I find guidance about which 
engine is best for me, and where to find it in my ECLiPSe install dir?  
I have looked here:
