GitHub extension stopped reporting progress when cloning from the Start Page #2196
In all recent versions of the GitHub extension, I've noticed that a clone from the Start Page does not show progress on the status bar of Visual Studio.
On debugging the Clone API call in Team Explorer I found that a null IProgress was being sent and hence progress cannot be reported.
We're planning to add this feature to the Start Window and this lack of progress will cause experience gaps.
I'm on the VS team and noticed this on the debugger. I think progress is currently broken in the clone api that the GitHub extension calls, so if you could validate that when IProgress passed to the clone API is non-null, that would help a lot.
This is the file where a Code Container Provider is declared: VisualStudio/src/GitHub.StartPage/StartPagePackage.cs
I'm happy to talk more if needed.
