Hmm, what does this mean? Specifically, it is not clear what "for
'git clone'" exactly means. It is not "for use of 'git clone'",
because you should be able to create a bundle that has 'master'
branch without 'maint', 'next', and 'pu' and clone from it, no?
git checkout maint
git bundle create /var/tmp/1.bndl HEAD refs/heads/maint
cd /var/tmp && git clone 1.bndl xprm
I also think "--all" is a bad advice for another reason. Doesn't it
shove refs from refs/remotes/* hierarchy in the resulting bundle?
It is fine for archiving purposes, but it does not seem to be a good
advice to create a bundle to clone from.
