Looking at fedora's eclipse plugins packages, it seems they are symlinking 
directly the jars from their system bundle in the eclipse plugins directory, 
with full package and version as symlink name.
I thought some eclipse specific files (like plugin.properties) were required 
inside the jar, but it seems not.
