How to import a local GIT/Maven project/folder into eclipse?

So I did git clone to get a maven project from a remote git repository. Great! I have been working in the command line, doing git pull, commit, etc. Great! Now I want to import this project into eclipse and be able to use git inside eclipse through the installed egit. So I did a:

mvn eclipse:eclipse -Dwtpversion=2.0

And after that I am able to import the project into eclipse through the regular:

    First, what you want to do is import the project as a Maven project directly. Then you don’t have to do all the random command line stuff, plus you have the Maven integration in Eclipse with your dependencies and pom.xml kept up to date. (You need m2e installed for this.) Go to Import and select ‘Existing Maven Projects’:

    Then, what you should do is enable eGit on the project. Right click the root of the project and select “Share Project” under “Teams”.

    Select Git and it will tell you that you can use the existing repo. Voila, you’re done.

    Team > Share Project -> select the git project.
