Sure, and I have done the same thing (though I tend to clone from the
other person as "origin", and only fork my own repo when I am ready to
push). But it shouldn't matter, should it? The whole point of the
upstream config is that "git checkout -b topic junio/master" does the
right thing, without caring about your naming convention.

So I'm not sure what you think should be said (or where). Telling me in
patch form is preferred. :)
