No, "git checkout -b myweb web/master" is supposed to do this job.

Are you sure that you actually use Git or newer? What does

        git --version


I see no other reason for saying instructions are incorrect: I have
actually tested these instructions under GNU/Linux, with Git
Do a Git expert knows why this doesn't work?

limited portability :-/ If there is no other clean way to get you
started, you may simply fal back to Cogito...
