Hi,

The EasyEclipse could come with predefined set of Eclipse Update site URLs. This would go along the goal to eliminate the download hell.

Example:

1) One install EasyEclipse Python

2) It does not contain *any* update URLs in Software update menu

3) Google Subclipse

4) ...

this could be

1) One installs EasyEclipse Python

2) One goes to Help -> Software Update -> Checks "Subclipse"

3) Done

Since Update site URLs don't add anything to download size you could include update URLs for *all* plug-ins and thus enable single click installation of everything, still keeping download sizes small.
