[Libreoffice-qa] Using bibisect

I'm sure I've done this before, but for the moment my brain's gone dead!

I've changed to what I regard as my bibisect working directory and done

$git pull

Seemed to behave as I expected. I've subsequently done another pull and 
the results the second time are again to me as expected -

If do

$git status

I get

> On branch master
> Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.

At the moment I'm not worried about the untracked files.

For bisect, on source code, I would normally do a git branch -a to see 
what I've got and then start bisecting.

git branch -a

gives me

> * master
>   remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master
>   remotes/origin/master

I'm expecting a long list of branches which I could use to kick start my 
good and bad bisect steps.

Is somebody able to kick my brain back into bibisect mode?
