- To know the current branch, "git branch" is enough (the one '*'-ed)
- rsync(1) a repository is dangerous, it might catch it in the middle of
a update and give you an incomplete/messed up copy. Repeat rsync until no
change, perhaps?
- I understand "git checkout -f" blows away any local changes, no questions
asked. Not very nice to suggest that to a newbie...

Thanks for the docu!
