There is no branch named "master".

Apparently git relies a lot on several defaults; a "master" branch, an
"origin" remote.

<rant> The real remote is "savannah"; why can't I just use that name?
and all the branch names are imported from monotone; why does git assume
- without checking! - there is one named "master"?

So you must use -b to override the default branch "master".

I'll see if I can get the savannah team to modify the git clone command
