This is pretty basic, and I'm probably doing something silly, but the EGit download page at:

http://www.eclipse.org/egit/download/

has a link that it recommends to tell you how to install EGit:

http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates

This is just a blank page...

That makes EGit a bit hard to install.

But before you even get to wondering how to install it, you can't get the file(s). When you click on the "download" link on

http://www.eclipse.org/egit/download/

it just takes you back to the same page and nothing downloads.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Best wishes

Adrian

Hi Adrian,

this is our update site URL meant for installing EGit via the p2 update
manager.
We still have not put some html to the site which describes what a user is
supposed to do.

You can do it the following way:
In your Eclipse IDE, select Help -> Install New Software...
In the dialog, press the Add button and enter the URL, together with a
meaningfull name.
Now Check the "Eclipse Git Team Provider (Incubation)" node, press next and
finish.

Stefan
