I have been using this "trick" to help the user clone a specific git project in Orion:
Then all the user needs to do is click "Submit".
This is helpful for new users, as it provides a quick way to load a project before they even know how to operate the Git page.
I just noticed that this scheme no longer works, if the user does not have other git repositories (which will be the case for first time users).
Question: is this a feature that the Orion team wants to preserve (if so, I filed bug 513333)?
