Where would I find how to setup Eclipse, Git, Odoo and everything in between to be able to run, debug the newest version of odoo.

Laurent Mignon from Acsone provided a demo of using buildout to get Odoo up and running on a clean server, plus his company created an addition to get Eclipse added and mostly configured. (You just have to import the project).

Here you can see the talk Laurent gave at Odoo Days 2014: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GUxV85DDm4&t=9h17m30s

After you've watched his "5 minute" demo you'll want to go here: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/acsone.recipe.odoo.pydev/1.2 to get started.

Git is another story. I hope to Edit this answer shortly with some direction for you there.


I found another document talking about how to get a development environment setup (albeit for a very old version of OpenERP) http://apagen.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/setup-openerp-development-environment-using-eclipse-in-ubuntu/ I should mention that I did get a development environment working for V8, however it was a mess. (I used the instructions by http://www.theopensourcerer.com/2014/09/how-to-install-openerp-odoo-8-on-ubuntu-server-14-04-lts/ to get Odoo installed however I had to undo some of the steps to allow my developer-user access to run the code.)
