CWE: Getting Started Question

Step 2 of the Getting Started wiki page says:

Set the Where is the source code option to the location where you cloned the repository.

What repository?

Have you even TRIED to set up a client and server? THAT takes ages. -PeterC

https://github.com/H-uru/Plasma

We assumed that people already knew where the code was and how to get it. Do you think it should be made clearer? :|

Well, you could have a beginner and advanced version of it. But yes, clearer would be helpful. I have no idea what Git or CMake do.

Git fetches the code from the Github repository.
CMake configures your build.
Visual Studio takes the configuration files and uses them to build your client.

Some more extensive information :)

Git is the version control system(other examples : svn, mercurial) used by Github where the code is hosted. Apart from hosting and distributing the code, Github(and git) is used to review changes people want to make to the code.

Cmake is a program that can make build projects for different buildsystems like Xcode, visual studio, unix make files etc.

Ok, that doesn't explain where the repository comes from.

I've updated the instructions with information.

The repository is hosted on Github's server. You clone this repository to your computer, then work with the local copy (or clone) of that Plasma repository.

I just did one with minimal information - but it IS assumed (AFAIK) that you know how Git and VCS works, or are willing to learn.

Sure I'm willing to learn. Where can I do that? Is that in the new tutorial?
