Creating an Eclipse Plugin

First download the Eclipse IDE for Eclipse Committers - used to be called Eclipse Standard - see this bug for chit chat.

Question already asked and answered: Eclipse RCP Plug-in Target Platform.

Next you get at the project templates - I had some difficulty finding them. Choose and template and then - git (TBC)
