Yes, you need to clone the repo in order to get at the kind of information you want.

org.spearce was renamed to org.eclipse, that might solve some problems. That was almost five years ago, so those tutorials
are pretty old and there are much better APIs nowadays. You should try to stick with the org.eclipse.jgit.api package as
much as possible.

We don't have much tutorials on JGit, except what's been written by third parties, but there's a lot of code in the
form of unit tests, the pgm package and of course EGit.
