3. "URI" is not available - but "Clone URI" is. I guess this is basically the same thing:-)
4. is ok
5. here I struggle badly: I am presented with a selection of three branches found at the uri "master", "newport", "sensor framework". I deselect all but not the "master" branch - is this correct way as an enduser? Then I hit "next". Then I am supposed to chose a target directory and the initial branch (only master available), and the remote name "origin". There is also a checkbox deselected saying "clone submodules" is this supposed to be activated? My problem is: Where can I select the 0.5.0-alpha tag. I can not find it - it always leads to checking out head.
Any advise on how to get the 0.5.0-alpha tag commit instead of HEAD is greatly appreciated!
Clone URI IS the same thing, yes ^^. at step 5 you can leave everything as is. I left all three branches selected, "clone submodules" unselected. After the download of the sources you will be in the master branch. You can then change to the 0.5.0-alpha tag/branch in the "git repositories"-window. You can open it by "Window" --> "Show view" --> "other..."-->git-->"Git Repositories". There you can expand your repository and expand "tags". there you will see branches for every alpha release. rightclick on 0.5.0-alpha and checkout. Then you will have the 0.5.0 sources
