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.

right, it is just "git checkout $BRANCH".

Why do you need the -B option and therefore an extra switch ?

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

-B is creating a new branch. An existing tar ball may be used to reduce the
deltas to download. But this is complete independend of a checkout.
