There is no master branch! I cloned repo and got this warning

 warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout.

The directory seems to be empty probably because HEAD was not properly
checked out. git branch -a shows following


So I did these to get them on my local machine.

git branch --track debian remotes/origin/debian
git branch --track upstream remotes/origin/upstream

So then I checked out Debian branch and it contains all upstream file
with debian directory. I feel these branch should be master. As master
in git repo for a package contains upstream with debian directory. And
debian folder changes are tracked using tags something like

Can we rename this branch to master?. After that I think we may need
pristine-tar branch if we plan to make repo git-buildpackage

Well that's my 2 cents :). Let me know your thoughts
