When I clone repos, I am noticiing that half the time the new repo
does not have a master branch, but instead some other branch that is
available on the original repos. According to the manual, the clone
should:

"checks out an initial branch equal to the cloned repository's
currently active branch"

I thought that the currently active branch is shown via 'git branch',
but I am noticing that the clone does not always have this branch as
the initial branch. The initial branch is sometimes a branch that was
used to merge into the active branch.

I am pretty confused as to what is going on. My end goal is to give
developers consise instructions on how to create a new branch off the
master or any other branch they prefer.

Thanks!

Harry
