   Cloning with git fetches _all_ branches that exist in the cloned git
   repo.  They are under the "origin/" namespace.


      git checkout -b lexbind origin/lexbind

   [After that, you can switch to your local lexbind branch by just
   using "git checkout lexbind"; to switch back to the trunk, use
   "git checkout master".]

Will my local git repository be able to "track" the activity of
the branch I am working. In short, will git-pull also fetch
branches ? If not, how can I tell it to automatically track and
fetch any change made on a given remote branch ?
