Looks like cogito is using $repo/heads/$branch, whereas my git repo is
using $repo/branches/$branch.

You can achieve what's necessary with

> rsync --verbose --delete --stats --progress \
> -a rsync:// .git

and then

and then

For what it's worth, this is only netdev-2.6 as it appeared in
BitKeeper. I am only now merging all the emailed patches since BK devel
stopped into git, which includes the ipw code you submitted.
