Invalid project descriptionDamn. My first thought was a potential incompatibility, given that the project was created on my Mac previously, and I just tried to import it on Win7.
So if you should encounter a similar problem try the following. Assume you pulled the repository into
- create another directory, for instance
- start Eclipse to use that directory as its workspace.
- use the "Import existing project" functionality and point to the git directory
- Uncheck the "copy into workspace" flag.
That approach should work, at least it did for me.
