Hm, but why do you need this at all ?
I'm not sure what 'this' refers to, did you mean this line:

+ git checkout -B "$MYBRANCH"


git checkout -r $BRANCH

working for you ?

? Did I miss a git syntax trick? the git-checkout manpage doesn't mention an
-r option.

My intention is to have a source service that can tar up an arbitrary branch,
and afaics there isn't a way to do that with git in tar_scm at present. If I
understand correctly, tar_scm may be called where an existing clone exists,
I used checkout -B to cover the case that the user changes the branch in an
existing source service so the existing clone is checked out to the requested

Errm, just use

git archive <tag or branchname>

e.g. I use for Wine:

git archive origin --prefix=wine-$winever.$xdate/ | bzip2

Of your you can replace "origin" by whatever branch or tag or other GIT thingie
you want.
