There were several discussion in GitHub about removing IDE files (they are
linked from the JBS issue ). At the end, I didn't see any decision or
I would like to update the Eclipse files soon since the cleanup  is
almost done. These files allow anyone who checks out OpenJFX to start
working immediately. If these files are not provided, they would need to
manually configure them and currently that's a bit tricky.
I would like to know the current stand on this.
