Hi Andrew

I've pulled the vanilla master then did
git remote add abartlet git://
which succeeds without errors, but when doing

git checkout abartlet/repl-devel -b repl-devel

i get :

fatal: git checkout: updating paths is incompatible with switching branches.
Did you intend to checkout 'abartlet/repl-devel' which can not be
resolved as commit?

sorry that I have to plague you, but I am not familiar with those git
