Setting an external repo for code tracking

You need a project on polyaxon that it's not linked to a code repo yet:

polyaxon project create --name=quick-start

And then you need set the git url:

polyaxon project -p project1 git --url="https://github.com/polyaxon/polyaxon-quick-start"

If the project is private you need to add --private to the command to indicate that the repo is private, i.e.

polyaxon project -p project1 git --url="https://github.com/polyaxon/polyaxon-quick-start" --private
