They're just branches, actually. 'master' is the branch that git-clone
starts you on -- but it renames your local working copy of that branch
to 'origin'. These git-clone behaviors are the only things that make
those branch names special.

The fact that 'origin' appears in the repository at fd.o is a bug,
though. I accidentally pushed it from my local repository. Keith deleted
it from the server for me, but I think my repository remembered that I
pushed it and has kept pushing it since, or something. Now Josh is
pushing it too. I don't have access rights to fix the server, and I
don't know how to fix my local copy.

Keith or Carl: help?
