Checking Out Code as an Anonymous User
An anonymous user has access only to check out files from the GIT repository. This user does not have the privileges to check in files.
Configuring the GIT client to check out files
- Open the GIT perspective in the Eclipse Workbench by selecting Windows > Open Perspective > GIT.
- Right click on the GIT Repositories view, and select New > Repository Location...
Clone URI: git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/pdt/org.eclipse.pdt.git # or if you're eclipse user and/or PDT committer: git clone ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org:29418/pdt/org.eclipse.pdt.git
Checking Out Code
If you followed the instructions in the previous section, you should see a new repository entry in the GIT Repositories view.

- Download the PSF file and save it somewhere memorable, like your desktop.
- Back in Eclipse, switch to the Java perspective.
- From the File menu or Project Explorer context menu, select Import.
- Choose Team > Team Project Set, then click Next.
- Browse for the .psf file you want to use. Click Finish.
- Each feature & plugin will then be checked out as a project in the workspace.
