Doesn't work:

ramer[5] git clone plt plt-release
Initialized empty Git repository in /afs/informatik.uni-tuebingen.de/home/sperber/build/plt-release/.git/
Checking out files: 100% (8688/8688), done.
kramer[6] cd plt-release/
kramer[7] git checkout release
error: pathspec 'release' did not match any file(s) known to git.
