    I am having a hard time finding open source repository locations.

    I have eclipse setup with the cvs , svn , git , and mercurial plugins.

    What I want to do is work on or at least checkout the major open source projects like
    grub , linux kernel , gnome , x11 , kde ,gcc ,bash ,coreutils ,....etc etc

    Note: I can find the source in tar zip and other archive formats but I really want to just be able to add repository locations and download all the open source projects I want thru eclipse.

    It is a pain to keep downloading and importing as an archive file into a project in eclipse
    Plus with revision control I could get the latest changes more quickly and easily as well as compare changes in a more easy manner.
