You don't want to be pulling xfs-dev into a xfs/master tree, you should
setup a remote properly and have local branch tracking them.

Ya and this is a non trivial thing to do without proper instructions.

well, see the man page for: git-remote add ...
But maybe Niv could spell out some specific examples for the XFS trees

Sigh ....
Honestly you think ptools info is useful here?

the original document was written to help SGI internal developers
migrate from ptools to git - and given most XFS oss developers
are familiar with ptools, the analogies in that doc are probably
useful.  But whatever we put up on the wiki for longer term reference
should probably have the ptools crud stripped out.
