I'm trying to convert a Perforce repository to git, knowing that:
- I use client specs to remove a bunch of folders containing binaires
(several GiB)
- branch mappings may not be properly set, and I can't change them

Now, the branches are layout like this:
- Branch/Main <- master
- Branch/Feature1
- ...
- Releases/2013
- ...
I would like to have these branches and releases branches inside by
cloned git repository, but this doesn't work. I keep on getting each
file with Project/Branch/Main as well as Project/Branch/Feature1 and
all others in my master branch.
I tried to add branchLists like this:
        branchList = Branch/Main:Releases/2013
        branchList = Releases/2013:Branch/Feature1
but it doesn't change a thing with the following command:
 git p4 clone --verbose --use-client-spec --detect-branches

I can see that branches are detected from the Perforce server, but
none are actually detected for this specific project:
p4-git branches: []
initial parents: {}

Can someone give a pointer to a tutorial or something for a complex
case like this?
