Samples not in source code?

I created a clone of the source, and I don't see any sample projects (e.g. ContactManager_Advanced) in my local repository.

I downloaded the Preview 5 zip file, and it does contain the sample projects. Have the sample projects always been omitted from the source code?

I have just downloaded Web API Prevew 5 Source from here: 
http://wcf.codeplex.com/releases/view/73399

I do see the ContractManager_Advanced located here:
WCF Web API Preview 5 - 09.14.2011.zip\WCFWebApi\Http\samples

Did you open up the solution wiht the sample?
I.e. WCF Web API Preview 5 - 09.14.2011.zip\WCFWebApi\WCF Web API - Source, Samples and Tests.sln

Yes, I know that the samples are included in the download packages. I'm talking about within source control. If you browse the source code section, you won't see any of the samples there.

The samples are there within source however they are in a separate branch. You have to choose the webapi-prototype branch in the dropdown or use "hg update webapi-prototype" if you pull the code from hg.

Thanks. I didn't realize there was a seperate branch from default.
