A user-friendly way of cloning a
git repo is through the eGit plug-in in Eclipse. But sometimes, especially on Windows machines, Eclipse has trouble cleaning up after itself after completing a clone operation. The best workaround for this is to clone the repo from
git bashand then import the repo in Eclipse.

$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:<your git repo> <local folder to check out to>
