[jax-rs-spec users] how to build jersey using EGit and Eclipse

Is there a blog, or tutorial or readme, that can guide me through the
process of setting up my machine (Eclipse) to work on contributions to
the Jersey source code?

I had run into a suspected bug with Jersey. So I downloaded the source
jars, and believe I found the issue. I would like to attempt to fix it
and then contribute it.

I started by visiting the Jersey Contibution web page that discussed
getting the source from GitHub ( I
fired up Eclipse Luna (4.4), installed EGit, and tried to create a
project. Eclipse/Egit downloaded all the Jersey code to my machine,
but not in any structure that would build in Eclipse. This is where I
am stuck and looking for guidance on how to set this up. Ideally, the
process will allow EGit to manage the source files and commits directly
from Eclipse as I work on the files. Meaning I don't want the master
files stored outside my eclipse project workspace, where I have to
manually move files back and forth from one directory to another when
working in eclipse and then committing to GitHub.
