[m2e-users] How to checkout Maven projects from a local Git repository?

Hi,

subject says it all. What I did try:

1.) Import the project as an "existing Maven project" (that worked
fine, of course), followed by Team->Share Project. Selected "Git" as
repository type, and clicked on either "Next", or "Finish". Nothing
happens.

2.) Import the project via "Checkout Maven Projects from SCM".
Initially, Git wasn't offered here, but I installed m2e-egit manually.
(Downloaded features. and plugins from (using [1] as an Eclipse update
URL failed). Now I could choose git as an SCM type. Entered the SCM
URL
file:///C:\Users\jwi\git\repo (the repository path), or
file:///C:\Users\jwi\git\repo\project (the project path). Again,
nothing happened.

What the heck am I doing wrong? Guys, M2E, and Git are the most
important tools in Java land nowadays. This has got to work somehow.

Thanks,

Jochen
