Default Learning ROM development ?

Hi Everyone,
I would like to learn Android ROM development, but do not know how it is done in Ubuntu.
I have build CM7 successfully on Ubuntu 11.10 and would like to proceed further to develop ROM, but do not know how to ? I mean I know if android apps is required to be developed, then ECLIPSE is used, but, if ROM is to be developed, then how it is done ?

I mean, is there any eclipse like IDE (Development Environment) exist to develop ROM ? Can anyone guide me or provide me link how to proceed further ?

I searched a lot in google, but could not find any site which gives details on it. What I am getting on search is only setting-up the envirnment and compiling the source code, but nobody deals with how to modify or develop further on ROM.

Any help on this regard will be appreciated.

Edit: I found it, we can use eclipse itself for the editing and I think to build the source code modified, we need to proceed in the same way. Below is the link:
