my target is to contribute to open source projects, but i am still confused with the things, especially with git.
messing up with git,svn,git-scm.
one site is https://github.com/, where i have created one account, and as i know, it is a central repository where i can keep my source code.
second is i have downloaded git for windows, i have installed that and tried to clone one repository for jenkins but for last 3 hours it showing me the same screen says, Working..... Please Wait....
i had a lot of search on google and found a lot of tutorials and all, but each one is different, i am still confused and completely messed up.
i am very much interested to contribute in open source, but don't know why i am not getting it.
even each night i come to my office, sit in front of my computer, do some google search for this, apply that and again get confused.

There could be a few reasons:
  • You aren't running the right clone command. Can you show the command you are running here?
  • You have a firewall preventing git access. This is unlikely as even the NYC Board of Education doesn't block git and they block a lot.
  • The project you are trying to clone is too large and your network connection can't handle it.

    Exactly where did you install git from? I have never had git display a gui to me. Also, most repositories I have cloned haven't taken very long. Did you try watching network activity to see what the download speed is?

    By the way, for those of you who are new to Git (like I was till a few months back), I highly recommend this free online book on Git http://git-scm.com/book. It has very good explanation of how git works and helps you get started very quickly.

    i have installed git from here only:
    http://git-scm.com
    after installation, i got one git bash and one git gui, git gui is that screen.
    and yes i got that jenkins repository, it's about 96 mb's.


    we need to give the source location, (ie: the url), and the target location (any location in our hard drive), in those text boxes.


    it creates one directory structure in that folder, consist the source code.
    how do i make it as a eclipse project so that i would be able to import that and start working?
    also is there any documentation to see the classes and how can i use that, so that would be able to start contributing.
