I tried it that way first, but the difference between maven-eclipse and m2eclipse gave me problems. (I am using m2eclipse.) Following those instructions, I got the ' "Updating Maven Project". Unsupported IClasspathEntry kind=4' error that is explained in this stackoverflow page: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10564684/how-to-fix-error-updating-maven-project-unsupported-iclasspathentry-kind-4
Hmmm... I just realized that this discussion probably belongs over of the developer's email list. What do you think?

I use the method mentioned on that page:
$ mkdir apache-flume
$ cd apache-flume
$ git clone https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/flume.git
$ cd flume
$ mvn install -DskipTests
$ mvn eclipse:eclipse -DdownloadSources -DdownloadJavadocs
Add $HOME/.m2/repository to the my classpath in preferences.
Import the projects.

> On the wiki, https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FLUME/Development+Environment#DevelopmentEnvironment-SettingupEclipse, the basic instructions say that I can use either the maven-eclipse plugin or the m2eclipse plugin. But, it only shows how to use the maven-eclipse plugin. Are the instructions the same for m2eclipse? The implication that I get from the page is no.
