Eep.  Cogito on Gentoo is broken:
# cg clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git wine-git
[ ... snip ...]
# cd wine-git
# cg-branch-add mmbranch http://mandoo.dyndns.org/wine.git
Fetching head...
Fetching objects...
/usr/bin/cg-fetch: line 152: git-http-fetch: command not found
cg-fetch: objects fetch failed

While Cogito's syntax is definitely broken ("cg clone" vs.
"cg-branch-add" eg.), I do find that it's still much much better than
Git's.  I've played with getwinegit.sh too, but I don't think it can
fetch branches.

If it's not too much work for you, could you set up git:// access to
your branch?
I think that would work better with Cogito..
