finally , you will see that the project is setup on smartgit. notice that the newly downloaded sources are from the development branch where you WILL NEED to do development.

the master branch is for production usage.

The steps to follow for development and collaboration is .

      1. you create another branch on "development" & implement some new functionality.
      2. after testing, you merge it into "development" and push it to the remote.
      3. after that , you will send out a pull request on GitHub.
      4. the new code will be pulled into "development"  branch at and tested.
      5. if all is well , the changes are moved into "master" branch @

NOTE: But if you have your own process of development, just follow it and push your chnages to your forked repo and send us a "pull" request.

Once the sources are in place, we shall build the project and import it into STS IDE. To build the project , follow the next tutorial on setting up Spring ROO and building the mycloudportal project using maven.
