From git to project ?(sortof repost)

This is embarrassing , but ...
I am trying to clone PROJECT from git and all I am getting is "source code configuration ".
I am not sure what I am doing wrong. It worked in the past and I was getting cloned project - not source code in need of "configure".
Is the examples link wrong ?
I am using the link from "examples" and have three sources to clone.
I am not sure why there are three "clone" links. They all return same and require "configure" .... but what ?
I have no "project" only this what appears to be un configured [dev].
What am I doing wrong ?
I do not mind "configuring" , but I need Qt "project".
Each link uses a different protocol.
You cloned the whole qtbase module, navigate in examples sub folder to get to the example that interests you.
If you are using Qt 5.15, then I recommend that you first switch your clone to the corresponding branch.

I am probably using wrong terminology - but no matter which repository format / link I use I get "source" and when it is fished cloning it will go thru "configuration".
Which is fine, but it never ends with "project".
Actually there are two ways to clone - using "new project -> git ..."
or "tools-> git" .
Both produce name[dev] which is NOT Qt project I am after.
Minor issue is - if one does not pay attention and use defaults .
Even AFTER the [dev] is configured it periodically starts the "configuration" again - if left in "project" form as a separate "project" actually [dev].
Now I did this before and still using cloned "MDI" example, but cannot duplicate the cloning process again. Yes, I could use clean MDI example - my is getting too worn out.
I imagine the
confugureyou see and refer to is the new build system, which is now
cmakeinstead of the older
qmake. It's somewhat buggishly supported in QtCreator.
As I already wrote, it you are after the Qt 5 examples, switch the git branch.
Then go to the sub folder of the examples and open the project file that is there.
