Hi Jude,

In what situations does org-mode update fail?  I've never had to reclone
the org-mode repository - ever.  If git update fails, just do it again.
Recloning means you need to download all of the objects for org-mode
again which should never be necessary.

If you've messed up your local master branch somehow and want to revert
back to the official 'master' branch then just

$ git checkout master
$ git reset --hard origin/master

which throws away any local commits and uncommitted changes in your
working directory.

I fail to understand why you would ever need this script.  Can you
please elaborate?
