Sorry, I've been droped out, the mailining list change confused my

$ git clone git://oss.sgi.com/xfs/xfs.git

# checking out xfs-dev and making it track the repo:
$ git checkout -b xfs-dev --track origin/xfs-dev

# adding a remote
$ git remote add $name $remoteurl
$ git remote udpate

that will put your remote branches in the $name/$branch namespace.

Anything else ?
