1.  git-clone gets the entire repo, not just the particular
branch that you want.
2.  We don't want newbies switching between branches, because
(speaking from experience) that wastes 1-5 hours of frustrating
time-wasting when you're just trying to work on lilypond.
3.  I'm not certain if git-clone setups up everything for doing
"git pull origin" and "git push origin".

That said, I cheerfully admit that I know very little about git.
My understanding is that the warning messages are harmless and
produce the end result that we want, but if anybody has any
improvements, I'm all for them...
