Open a Maven Project. Probably by providing a URL or opening a pom.xml file, the Add-In will populate/download the necessary source code to open the .Net Project.
How:
    By using a "Maven Explorer" where user can specify URL, and a list of .Net Project that can be opened in the VS. This include checkout of the file.
    By Opening a pom.xml file and getting the necessary codes.

This way a user can just open a pom file using VS and be able to Checkout the code and start working or editing the Project.
Same as true with the artifact, if he tries to open the artifact in VS (not adding it as a reference) we would be able to download the codes for the artifact if available. (NOTE: this is on true for project supported by NPanday)
