We're glad you were able to get started, however creating or manually editing the .proj file is not a supported scenario and can lead to unforeseen problems with Icenium IDEs.
The recommended approach is to add or remove files and folders from the Graphite's/Mist's own UI in a newly created Icenium project, which automatically reflects all the changes made in the file system to the .proj file as well. Then you can commit and push your local changes to the remote blank Git repository.
To sum up, you cannot clone repositories that were not created (pushed by Icenium) because they are lacking the project file, which describes all included files as well as project specific properties. We will handle such situations more gracefully in the future.
