I am trying to get started using your modified mr tool and mrsetup scripts.
I am getting an error and not quite sure how to resolv the issue.
Thanks for your help.

rm -rf code;rm -r .bin;./mrsetup
I: cloning mr into code/mr...

fatal: git checkout: updating paths is incompatible with switching branches.
Did you intend to checkout 'origin/vcsh' which can not be resolved as

I: initial .mrconfig:
include = cat code/mr/lib/*

checkout = git_fake_bare_checkout ssh://c2d.edgar.loc/~/git/pub/etc/mr.git
mr.git ../../

I: cloning mr configuration...
./mrsetup: line 79: code/mr/mr: No such file or directory

on the master git repo I have these branches
eje001 at c2d ~/git/pub/code/mr.git $ git branch -a
* origin/vcsh
  remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master

git remote show origin
* remote origin
  URL: git://
  HEAD branch (remote HEAD is ambiguous, may be one of the following):
  Remote branches:
    joeyh  tracked
    master tracked
    vcsh   tracked
  Local branches configured for 'git pull':
    master      merges with remote master
    origin/vcsh merges with remote vcsh
  Local ref configured for 'git push':
    master pushes to master (up to date)

Thanks again,
Eric Edgar
