How to setup branch tracking when starting local?

I've written a twoline script that sets up the remote for a vcsh repo:

vcsh $1 remote add origin $VCSH_REMOTE_BASE/$1.git

When I first run "mr push" I got the complaint:
  No refs in common and none specified; doing nothing.
  Perhaps you should specify a branch such as 'master'.

So I need to cd .config/vcsh/repo.d/MYREPO and do a manual git push origin 
master the first time.

What would be the appropriate git command to put in my above script to setup 
that the master branch should be pushed to origin?
