Sometimes it’s good to stir the pot (especially when the pot has been stale for 2 years and you found it serendipitously). If you’re interested in XSLT support in the WTP project, please voice your support on the bug and send Lars (of EclipseXSLT fame) a virtual beer for his good work. This is something that I have been personally missing in Eclipse and it’s about time we get it.
On a side note, from one open-source developer to another… if you ever come across anyone wanting to contribute to your project, it should be one of your top priorities to make sure a relationship is formed. Building a successful open-source project is about building communities and relationships… that trumps whatever bug you’re working on at the moment.
