Hello,

How can I use EGit to create a Git repository from sources that are
already in an Eclipse project? I found literature on how to import from a
Git repository, but nothing on exporting.

I'm running Eclipse 3.4.0, EGit 0.5.0, and Git 1.6.0.6.

Regards

EGit supports the common interface for Eclipse Team collaboration.
Right-click on your project and select Team -> Share Project. Select
Git and click Next. On the 'configure git repository' dialog, you may
have to select your project again. Then you should have the option to
Create the repository specified in the input line at the bottom of the
dialog (click Create). Then click Finish.

After that, you can right-click folders and do Team -> Add to Version
Control. The next step is to commit; until then, the repository will be
empty. What you have at this point is version control on your own
machine. You'll eventually want to push the contents of your repository
to another server. I use GitHub, so I don't have any guidance for how
to set up any other system. The guidance there is pretty good.

Good luck!
John

Actually this doesn't work as expected.

Have a look in the draft of the user guide we started recently and let us know if this is understandable and what you miss in this draft : http://wiki.eclipse.org/EGit/User_Guide/Getting_Started

Actually this https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=291303 as expected.
