In the past for C/C++ (which I was hardly using anymore until recently) I was
using vi or emacs. Recently for C/C++ I switched to the Eclipse IDE. I have
not tried Hatari with Eclipse yet. Maybe somebody on this list knows whether
there are any issues, in particular with the build process?

I agree with that, but IMO a part of the burden is caused by not using
platforms like GitHub, which make collaboration easier, even though they
are not a solution for everything, as we have seen in this thread.
Nevertheless having more transparency, so that you can easily get an overview
on open issues, active feature branches, PRs, items to be addressed before
the next release etc. would be nice.
