Many times you will find yourself in a situation where you can not use public repository for your code, e.g. free public hosted git repository at Github, because your code is private. In such case, you simply follow the previous steps, but the build is going to fail, because OpenShift will not be able to download the source code as it will not have the credentials to authenticate itself against the git repository.
