It's never too late! ;)

No, we don't check in the entire workspace. We have a portion our team
wiki dedicated to setting up the environment, and that contains copies
of the latest configuration items such as the global eclipse config,
copies of codetemplates.xml and our checkstyle config file. Part of
setting up the environment is copying these files to the right places.
Whilest I admit that this isn't perfect and requires it be done if you
create a new workspace, it's a simple matter done once, and only again
if we decide to change something in the template or the checkstyle
settings, which is rare now that we're into the project properly.
Perhaps we could check in a sample workspace that includes all the files
we've set up, and after creating the workspace, people would have to
shut eclipse down, check out the workspace base over the top, then
restart eclipse. *shrug* A possibility.
