I am roughly following these steps https://community.jboss.org/wiki/AdvancedJavaEELabjaro2014 to import a project from a Git repository.
I firstly use the Git perspective to clone a remote repository.
Then, still in the Git perspective when I right-click on the "Working directory" there is an option to "Import projects". However, this option only allows for eclipse or general projects to be imported. A Maven project is not recognized.
I am aware of other ways of importing the Maven project. However, I think that Maven should be supported consistently across all the "import-project-like" dialogs, not only some of them.
