OK, I got the ssh part of the problem resolved, thanks to your help.

Now, I'm trying to get things set up properly with git repositories.  After 
looking at the csorensen fork, I have discovered that all of the necessary 
changes are there.

So I decided I wanted to get the csorensen fork.  I decided to use git clone, 
since I knew how that should work.

address@hidden gitTest]$ git clone git://
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/carl/gitTest/csorensen/.git/

Warning: Remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout.

But I haven't got any files in my csorensen/ directory (which I would expect, 
I couldn't checkout the branch).

Is there anything I can do to fix this?  The files _are_ on; I've 
looked at them successfully.

I found a thread 
that says

"This apparently cannot be fixed locally, the only way to clone the repo from
the remote server is to edit the remote *.git/HEAD file to point to a valid
branch. "

I have no idea how to get started on this.  Can you give me any suggestions?
