You don't absolutely need to clone any of the existing ODL repos to develop an MD-SAL NSF. You can just download the Helium release from and use the API documentation linked from the Developer Guide.

However, it may help to clone the controller repo (git clone ssh:// and import it into your IDE of choice if you want to explore the implementation of some of the MD-SAL APIs, or if you want to use sample code, like the Toaster.

I think you should use network virtualization edition of Hydrogen release.

Hydrogen is no longer supported, so new code should be developed against the Helium release. Apart from support, you will have a more mature code base to develop against, and a lot more functionality.
