Typically, you'd simply ``git fetch'' (or ``git clone'' a new
repository), notice the new `origin/homepage' branch, create a new
working branch: ``git checkout -b homepage-work origin/homepage'', work
on that branch, transfer the results you want to publish to the
`homepage' branch and ``git push'' that one.  Does that help?
